Senate candidate and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton will address the Cornell community tomorrow on the ag quad.

The rally, featuring actor Ben Affleck and musical group Nine Days, is set to begin Saturday at 9:45 a.m. Free and open to the public, the event will proceed rain or shine.

“This rally is sure to be the biggest event of the year at Cornell,” said Josh Roth ’03, publicity director for the Cornell Democrats. “We are expecting thousands of people to fill the ag quad in support of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s candidacy.”

The Cornell Democrats are sponsoring the visit, which is Clinton’s fifth to the University.

Clinton will proceed from Ithaca on a bus tour that concludes Monday in Albany. The campaign will then wind down toward Election Day on Nov. 7, the conclusion of Clinton and U.S. Rep. Rick Lazio’s (NY-2nd) race to succeed Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan in the U.S. Senate.
