Hillary Clinton is headed to Tennessee next month, with plans to make appearances in both Memphis and Nashville.

CLINTON

Campaign staff for the Democratic presidential frontrunner sent word Wednesday morning that she’ll make her first campaign stop in the state Nov. 20.

Clinton’s trip, the campaign email reads, “will be her latest effort to build support in primary states and a grassroots organization beyond the four early states and work hard for every vote ahead of the March 1 Tennessee primary. During the event, she’ll lay out why she’s running, who and what she’ll fight for as president.”

Additional details about the appearances will be forthcoming, the campaign added.

Another prominent presidential candidate also is making quick plans to visit the Memphis area. Dr. Ben Carson, a Republican candidate, will hold a rally in West Memphis, Ark., on Friday, Oct. 30.

The event will be held at West Memphis High School’s Lehr Arena, 501 West Broadway. It will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Earlier this month, Clinton's campaign named its Tennessee supporters. 

U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen and outgoing Memphis Mayor A C Wharton are among the Memphis Democrats who have formally joined the former Secretary of State's campaign.

The team also includes state Sen. Sara Kyle and state Reps. G.A. Hardaway, Raumesh Akbari, Joe TownsLarry Miller and Johnnie Turner as well as Tennessee Young Democrats president London Lamar of Memphis.

Several other Memphians are on the list, including Democratic National Committee member Gale Jones Carson; business leaders John and Ellen Vergos, Henry and Lynne Turley, and Jim and Lucia Gilliland; city attorney Herman Morris; and attorney Dale Tuttle.
