Hillary Clinton to hold public event in Philly

Democratic candidate returns a week before Pennsylvania's primary

Less than a week before the Pennsylvania primary, Hillary Clinton will come back to Philadelphia.

The Democratic candidate's campaign said in a press release that she will be holding a public event in the city on April 20 to talk about her plans "to raise incomes for families and break down the barriers that hold Pennsylvanians back." The campaign said further details about the event would be released in the coming days.

Clinton spoke to the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO convention in Philadelphia earlier this month. On the same day, her rival for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders, held a rally at Temple University.

Clinton's husband and former President Bill Clinton also stumped in Philly this month. His speech at a Northwest Philly school drew controversy when he verbally sparred with protesters over, in part, a 1994 crime bill he signed into law while in office and its effects on the African American community.

Bill later said he was "almost sorry" for the heated exchange, and Hillary subsequently defended her husband's comments. A poll conducted shortly after the incident found there was seemingly no fallout for the Clinton camp among voters.

Pennsylvania's primary will be held April 26, and Clinton has consistently led Sanders in polls of the state's Democratic voters.
