Hillary Clinton to Make Presidential Campaign Stop in Maine

PORTLAND, Maine - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is planning to swing through Maine next month.

A Clinton campaign official said Wednesday that the former secretary of state and first lady will hold a grassroots organizing meeting in Portland on Friday, Sept. 18.

Clinton is looking to continue building her network of volunteers and plans to urge supporters to get involved in the campaign. She's also expected to attend a fundraising event while in Maine.

This will be her first campaign stop here since officially announcing her bid for the White House in April. She visited Scarborough last October to stump for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud.

One of her opponents, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, held a rally in Portland in July that drew more than 7,500 people.
