Hillary Clinton to visit UofL


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will speak April 9 at the University of Louisville as part of the McConnell Center’s spring lecture series.

    Her talk will begin at 2:45 p.m. in the Brown & Williamson Club on the third floor of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. The event is free and open to the public.

    Clinton began serving as Secretary of State in January 2009. She was elected U.S. senator for the state of New York in 2000 and re-elected to that post in 2006, serving on the budget and armed forces committees, committees on health, education, labor and pensions, environment and public works, aging and the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe.

    In 2007, she began her campaign for the U.S. Presidency.

    As the wife of former President Bill Clinton, she was First Lady of the United States from 1992 to 2000. In that role, she advocated health-care reform and issues related to children and families and traveled to more than 80 countries to champion human rights and democracy.

    In 1996, she visited UofL as a guest of the Kentucky Author Forum to promote her book, “It Takes a Village.”
