UPDATE @ 11 a.m. June 13:
In honor of the victims of Saturday evening’s shooting in Orlando, Hillary Clinton’s campaign said today it is postponing her visit to Cincinnati, which was set to be a private fundraiser at the home of Mayor John Cranley.
“The events in Orlando this weekend are tragic,” Jared Kamrass, a consultant who works with Cranley, told this news outlet. “We are grateful for Secretary Clinton’s leadership and we look forward to rescheduling her event in Cincinnati.”
Times for the new event were not immediately announced.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will be in Cincinnati on Monday, but there won’t be a public rally as previously reported.
Jared Kamrass, a consultant with Rivertown Strategies who works with Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley, said there will only be a private fundraiser at the mayor’s home Monday evening.
The public event that was in the planning stages was never solidified, he said.
“Schedules hadn’t been finalized yet,” he said, adding that the former Secretary of State is set to attend a fundraiser in Cleveland on Monday before coming to Cincinnati.
On Wednesday, WCPO in Cincinnati reported there would be a public event prior to the private fundraiser.
Laura Zapata, a spokeswoman with the Hillary Clinton campaign, told this news outlet late Wednesday afternoon the only event in Cincinnati on Clinton’s schedule was the private fundraiser.
