Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Chicago Monday for a series of fundraising events around the Windy City.
The former U.S. Secretary of State, a Chicago-area native, appeared in at least three events, marking her fourth visit to Chicago since the launch of her presidential campaign.
Her first fundraiser was in the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood at the home of Tanya and Michael Polsky, the CEO of clean-energy company Invenergy LLC who has previously hosted fundraisers for President Barack Obama.
The event began at 10:15 a.m. and went until noon.
Amid tight security, guests, who each paid $2,700 to hear from Clinton, were checked by metal detectors before they were allowed to enter.
The fundraiser was focused on clear energy, as the host is a wind energy specialist.
Around 1 p.m., Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced Clinton at an event aimed at Chicago's legal community at the Hyatt, located at 151 E. Wacker Dr.
Clinton is also slated to appear in Evanston for a campaign fundraiser. The Hillary for America event, which features ticket prices of $2,700 per person, will be held from 5-7 p.m. at the home of Eric Janssen, the president of Chicago Real Estate Resources Inc.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, who is believed to be on a short list of potential vice presidential candidates, was also in Chicago Monday.
Clinton, who grew up in the nearby suburb of Park Ridge, previously came to the city in May, when she attended three fundraisers in 24 hours.
She last appeared at an NAACP dinner Friday, drawing ovations and protesters while highlighting criminal justice and economic policies she says are intended to treat blacks more fairly.
