Hillary Clinton to visit Buffalo next Friday

Hillary Clinton brought her presidential campaign to Syracuse on Friday, less than three weeks before the New York Primary. She'll bring her campaign to Buffalo next Friday.

WBFO received confirmation from sources close to the campaign that Clinton will be in town April 8.

Details about when and where she would appear were not yet available. But local leaders were already eager for her arrival.

"We're very excited to see her. There's a lot of energy in town for her," said Erie County Democratic Committee chairman Jeremy Zellner, who traveled to Syracuse for Clinton's campaign stop there. "Our phones are ringing off the hook. We have a lot of volunteers making calls for her, every single night. We're really excited to see her soon."

Fueling the excitement is the fact that New York's April 19 primary remains relevant, with no candidate - Democrat or Republican - securing their respective party's nomination yet.

"For the first time in many years, we're in play here in New York and I'm excited about that," Zellner said. "We're getting more people involved than we ever have. We've got more people injected into the campaign and more people thinking about government and politics. That's always a good thing."

A poll released on Thursday found Clinton leading her rival, Bernie Sanders, 54 percent to 42 percent in New York.
