Well now! About 10 minutes ago, we got notice of some big changes for Hillary Clinton’s March 29th appearance at Rutgers University’s New Brunswick campus. Due to the demand, the venue is now changed from the College Ave. Gym (capacity 3,200) to The RAC (Rutgers Athletic Center, capacity 8,000). And registration, due to open at 2pm today, is now pushed back. New schedule & details below.
UPDATE: There are plenty of people who don’t appreciate Hillary Clinton. Here’s a link to a forming protest.
This is a great get for Rutgers and the Eagleton Institute, which has a history of great gets. According to Eagleton’s release: “Clinton will discuss American democracy and its institutions, her political career and her role in the women’s political movement during a public conversation March 29th as the Eagleton Institutes 2017-2018 Clifford P. Case Professor of Public Affairs.” The public conversation will be with Eagleton director Ruth B. Mandel, and will include “her path-breaking political career, and her singular role in shaping women’s political history.”
The venue change shows this is a hot, hot ticket. In 2016, Clinton took all 14 of New Jersey’s electoral votes, winning this state 55%-42% over Trump, and owning this blue, but establishment blue, state in the Dem Primary over Bernie Sanders 63%-37%. Frankly, I don’t appreciate Hillary Clinton even a little bit, but I am interested in what she has to say. Big congrats to Rutgers on this, and for making so many interesting political figures available to all of us in NJ.
