Clinton Supporters Hold Bloomington Kick off Rally                     

Bloomington – Supporters of former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Presidential bid are kicking off their local campaign efforts with a rally in Bloomington on Wednesday, September 7 at 6pm.  The rally will mark the official launch of the local Clinton campaign office located on 9th and Walnut (501 N. Walnut) in Bloomington.

The event will include remarks by Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton, City Councilwoman Susan Sandberg, Convention Delegate and local businesswoman Jeanne Smith, IU Law Professor Dawn Johnsen, and other local leaders. 

“We are all very proud to be a part of this historic campaign”, said Johnsen. “Bloomington volunteers are eager to be messengers for Hillary’s inclusive, progressive agenda”

The new Bloomington for Hillary office will also include offices for John Gregg, Glenda Ritz, Evan Bayh, and local Democrats. Local organizers are planning canvasses, phone banks, and voter outreach efforts that will be coordinated out of the shared headquarters.

 “The enthusiasm behind this grassroots campaign is profoundly energizing,” said Former State Senator and National Indiana Delegate Chairwoman, Vi Simpson. “The passion of local activists will help elect Democrats up and down the ticket in 2016.”

 Supporters are encouraged to attend this event, and volunteer for the campaign. Visit the Clinton Campaign website at
