Hillary Clinton to Address AME Church Conference in Philadelphia


Hillary Clinton is adding a campaign stop to her swing through Pennsylvania on Friday to address one of the largest black religious denominations in the country. 

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee will address the African Methodist Episcopal Church’s general conference, which is marking the organization’s bicentennial in Philadelphia. It’s meeting at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Clinton visited Mother Bethel AME Church, the birthplace of the denomination, in January.

African-Americans are among the most loyal Democratic voters and a key coalition for Clinton. They supported her overwhelmingly in the primary election and are expected to do the same in November.

Clinton is also scheduled to campaign with Vice President Joe Biden in the Scranton area, where she has family ties, to discuss the economy on Friday afternoon.
