ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Hillary Clinton’s campaign has confirmed that the Presidential hopeful will be visiting the Albany area on Monday afternoon for campaign events.

She will be flying into Albany International Airport. Details are limited at this time about her schedule.

Clinton was in Syracuse on Friday as part of her New York primary campaign tour to secure the democratic nomination for president. She talked about her plan to support small businesses and manufacturing jobs. She also held a rally with supporters.

The last time Clinton visited the Capital Region was in 2014 at the Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs for a book signing for her book “Hard Choices.” The book details her time as U.S. Secretary of State.

Clinton was a former U.S. Senator from New York, and Assemblyman John McDonald remembered when she visited his pharmacy in Cohoes.

“Well, it’s exciting,” he said. “You know, one of the most exciting aspects this year that I’ve ever seen in my lifetime is that New York really matters in this upcoming primary, and it’s interesting. Both republican and democrat.”

McDonald said Clinton will visit with the assembly democratic conference on Monday.

“What I know is it will not be on public property,” McDonald said. “It will be a private setting. That setting hasn’t been determined, yet, so we’ll be anxious to getting that update over the course of the weekend.”

Clinton’s campaign will release more details about her visit later Friday evening or early Saturday morning.
