Hillary Clinton's whistlestop tour makes break for Rec Hall

April 21, 2008

An estimated 1,500 people turned out to see Sen. Hillary Clinton speak in Rec Hall on Penn State's University Park campus on Sunday evening. Her visit was the latest in a long string of campaign visits statewide over the past several weeks. It was Clinton's last stop in a day that included visits to Bethlehem and Johnstown.  Clinton talked about health care, the war in Iraq and high cost of a college education.

As the countdown to the primary winds down to less than 24 hours, the candidates continue to get in a few last-minute stops.

Sen. Barack Obama, candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, will hold a town hall meeting, "On Track for Change," at Penn State Greater Allegheny on Monday, April 21. The event will take place at the campus' Wunderley Gymnasium, 4000 University Drive, McKeesport, Pa. 15132. Doors open at 4 p.m., and the program begins at 6 p.m.

Over the past six weeks, Obama, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and Ron Paul all have made stops to Penn State campuses including University Park, Brandywine, Fayette, Erie and Greater Allegheny. The visits are part of Penn State's effort to expose students to the 2008 presidential campaign, part of the University's open-door policy to host campaign stops during this primary season.
