Clinton and Obama's RI forces battle this weekend

Lots of local campaign activity this weekend, topped by Hillary's visit to RIC tomorrow. Seems no coincidence, btw, that Clinton and Michelle Obama made/are making their campaign stops at two of the more working-person-type educational institutions in the state, since the working class is a vital part of Hillary's base.

Clinton first:

Providence, RI – The Hillary Clinton campaign in Rhode Island has a series of activities taking place throughout the state this weekend, February 23 and 24.  In addition to Hillary Clinton’s “Solutions for America” rally at Rhode Island College this Sunday, volunteers will be knocking on doors, phone banking, delivering signs and rallying support. Two special guests from out of state will be joining the other approximately 600 volunteers organizing for Hillary Clinton over the weekend.

Events and Canvasses
Saturday Canvasses and Phone Banks - Supporters are scheduled to canvass and phone bank this Saturday in North Providence, Central Falls, Pawtucket, East Providence, Newport, Little Compton, Smithfield, Woonsocket, Providence*, and Warwick.  Kickoff meetings will take place in Cranston, South Kingston and Johnson, and will be followed by neighborhood by neighborhood canvasses.

*Sen. Rhoda Perry will join volunteers to canvass Ward I in Providence at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, starting at 202 Power St.
Charleston Beach Rally - A Charlestown supporter is hosting a rally on the beach this Saturday, February 23.  Supporters will meet at 950 Charlestown Beach Rd. and rally from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., spelling “Hillary Clinton for President” in the sand and taking aerial photos of the event.

Special Guests
Massachusetts Representative James McGovern – Rep. McGovern (D-MA) and Rep. James Langevin are scheduled to meet at the Pawtucket Hillary Clinton for President office, 200 Main St., at 10:30 a.m. this Saturday and take part in the day’s canvassing efforts before attending a 1:00 p.m. lunch with residents of the Fogarty Manor senior housing high rise. Time permitting, the two congressmen will then attend a gathering of prominent members of the Portuguese community. Rep. Langevin and Rep. McGovern will end the day with a meet and greet in the Warwick Mall food court.

America’s Cup Winner Dawn Riley –Dawn Riley, America’s Cup racer and president of the Women’s Sports Foundation, has spent the past six months volunteering for the Hillary Clinton campaign in different parts of the country and will be in Rhode Island this Saturday. Riley is the CEO of America True and the first female manger of an America’s Cup team. Press availability upon request.
