Hillary Rodham Clinton to Stop by Portland Middle School

PORTLAND, Maine - Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is making a campaign stop at a middle school in Portland as she continues her push for the Democratic nomination.

The former secretary of state will appear at King Middle School in the state's largest city Friday. The event is scheduled for 4 p.m. and will be open to the public. A Clinton spokesman says in a statement that the event is a "grassroots organizing meeting.'' It's part of Clinton's effort to build campaign infrastructure outside the early primary states.

Clinton campaigned in Maine last year on behalf of state Democrats who were running in midterm elections. She made an appearance at a Scarborough high school gym in October to support Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud and others.
