GRAND FORKS -- Hillary Clinton's campaign will come to Grand Forks Wednesday, with former Texas Sen. Wendy Davis slated to make multiple appearances in North Dakota on the presidential candidate's behalf.

At 1:30 p.m., Davis is expected to make a stop at the home of Becky Ronkowksi, chairwoman of the Grand Forks Democrats, at 234 25th Ave. S., for a "Women for Hillary" event. She will later travel to Fargo for a 4 p.m. appearance at a restaurant at Hotel Donaldson.

Guests can RSVP to the events up until they begin by going to hillaryclinton.com/events and typing in their zip code to search for the event webpage.

Davis is well-known for making an 11-hour filibuster in 2013 against an abortion regulation bill in Texas. Her support comes with Clinton endorsements from multiple former North Dakota politicians, including former Sen. Byron Dorgan and former Gov. George Sinner.

Davis' visit comes on the heels of former President Bill Clinton's Friday stop in Fargo and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' string of appearances May 13 in North Dakota. Sanders is Hillary Clinton's only competition in the Democratic presidential race.
