Ahead of California's June 7 primary, Hillary Clinton arrives in the Bay Area today, campaigning in Oakland this afternoon and fundraising in San Francisco this evening.
KRON 4 and the AP report that the Democratic candidate will appear the bilingual La Escuelita Elementary School at 2 p.m.
Later, ABC 7 writes, a fundraising event will be held in San Francisco, likely at the Masonic atop Nob Hill and, according to rumor, with appearances from both California senators and actor Elizabeth Banks. The venue, whose calendar for the evening is blank, is at least where protestors say Clinton will be. They plan to demonstrate outside.
Protests, often by supporters of rival Bernie Sanders, are a recurring theme at Clinton events. Those tonight could resemble the ones held against her in Los Angeles yesterday, where she faced criticism from Latino groups according to LAist. Or perhaps they could look like those held outside the candidate's last San Francisco fundraising effort, a dinner with George and Amal Clooney at $353,0000 a head.
While Clooney has since called that price ridiculous to NBC's Meet the Press, according to analysis in the New Yorker, the actor "straightforwardly defended the fund-raising as a corrosive but necessary means to counterattack the Republicans, at least until a better system is in place for all."
To date, Clinton holds 92 percent of the
contested delegates in delegates needed to win her party's primary. In California, she leads by a slimmer margin of six points, per an independent Field Poll released last month.
