Hillary Clinton to Make Brief Campaign Stop in Santa Barbara

Just days before California’s Democratic presidential primary, Hillary Clinton is planning a quick stop in Santa Barbara on Saturday as she barnstorms the state.

Clinton is set to address a rally at Hueneme High School in Oxnard early Saturday afternoon, according to a website that tracks her events.

She will then head to Santa Barbara, where she will host a small, invitation-only gathering at Jill's Place restaurant in downtown Santa Barbara, according owner Jill Shalhoob.

The event will be "A Conversation on Women and Families," and will begin at 4:30 p.m. at the restaurant at 632 Santa Barbara St., Shalhoob told Noozhawk.

Shalhoob said she is "excited and honored" that the Clinton campaign chose her restaurant for the event.

Clinton is then scheduled for a campaign stop in Fresno Saturday evening.

The former First Lady and U.S. secretary of state is locked in a tight battle with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination, with polls showing the two neck-and-neck in California going into next week's vote.

Sanders held rallies last weekend at Santa Barbara City College and Santa Maria High School that both were attended by crowds estimated at 6,000 people.

Tuesday’s California primary is among the last in the nation before the Democratic convention this summer, and Clinton is hoping to win enough delegates to claim her party's nomination.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
