CLEVELAND - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be in Cleveland on Thursday morning to speak to members of the public at Freiberger Field at Case Western University.
According to a release from her campaign, it’s part of Clinton’s efforts to “work for every vote and taken nothing for granted during this campaign.”
Several Case Western Reserve University students said they’ve already registered to attend.
“Starting off in a new school, a new environment in college is exciting in itself, and then having a presidential candidate is even more intriguing,” said Case Freshman Natasha Oldford. “I'm just really excited to hear Hillary Clinton talk.”

Clinton and volunteers will ask supporters to fill out a ‘Commit to Vote’ card, pledging to vote for Hillary in the Ohio primary election in 2016.
“Great move, smart move and we're thrilled to have Hillary Clinton, as we are going to be thrilled to have all candidates,” Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Chairman Stuart Garson said.
Garson said Cuyahoga County is a key place for Democrats to show support.
“The way to win Ohio is going to be through Cuyahoga County, be it the Democratic Party or Republican Party,” he said. “This very early, but the fact is, I think it's smart of all the candidates and behooves all these campaigns to get going and get going early here in Cuyahoga County.”
Doors will open at 9 a.m., and the event will begin at 10 a.m.
Bill Lubinger, the Director of Media Relations and Communications at Case, said that members of the public attending the event are encouraged to take public transportation.
