DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Super Tuesday is fast approaching, which has presidential candidates turning their campaigns to Texas. Hillary Clinton went straight from her win in Nevada on Saturday to Houston, and is set to have some big support on the ground in Dallas on Monday.
Bill Clinton will be speaking at 5:45 p.m. Monday evening at Paul Quinn College. School leaders called this a historic day. This is the first time that a sitting or former President has visited the college. Clinton will be arriving in North Texas after speaking at Texas A&M International University in Laredo.
Hillary Clinton has already been stumping in Texas, telling a crowd of supporters in Houston that the Supreme Court vacancy has made the stakes in this election even higher. “The Supreme Court hangs in the balance,” she said. “Three key cases coming up, started here in Texas, could have sweeping consequences for our entire country.”
Bernie Sanders has overwhelming support from the younger Democratic voters. However, over the weekend, Clinton made an appeal to college students — which could resonate again with her husband’s speech in Dallas on Monday. “You need help right now with the debt you already have,” she said. “I have a plan to cut your interest rates and cap payments, so you never have to pay more than you can afford!”
Early voting for Super Tuesday across Texas ends on Friday. The state is considered to be the top prize for candidates.
