OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Former President Bill Clinton is expected to hold a public availability in Oklahoma City on Sunday during his visit to the Sooner State for a fundraiser for his wife, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign says Bill Clinton will participate in a get-out-the-vote event in Oklahoma City to encourage Oklahoma voters to support Hillary Clinton in the March 1st primary. The campaign’s Oklahoma spokesman Patrick Burgwinkle says they still are finalizing a time and location for Bill Clinton’s public event, but says it will be free and open to anyone.

Bill Clinton also is speaking at a private reception hosted by Sonic CEO Cliff Hudson and his wife.

A spokesman for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign says Sanders plans to visit Oklahoma before the presidential primary.
