Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is reaching out to North Texans next week.
After announcing a local public event late last month, her campaign offered more details Friday. It will be at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday in the gymnasium at the Mountain View College in Dallas. Doors will open at noon.
Styled as a Texas grassroots organizing event with Clinton, the event at the college, 4849 W. Illinois Ave., takes place after she attends a private fundraiser.
Clinton, the front-runner in the Democratic presidential race, is the latest candidate to head to North Texas, hoping to claim a portion of Texas’ delegates when voters go to the polls for the presidential primary on March 1, 2016.

“Clinton’s trip will be her latest effort to build support in primary states and a grassroots organization beyond the four early states, and work hard for every vote ahead of the March 1st Texas primary,” her campaign statement said.
The four early states — the only four to hold primary elections or caucuses before Texans head to the polls — are Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. On March 1, Texas is one of 10 states to hold primary elections.
Clinton has made several trips to Texas in recent months, most recently holding public events geared to build grassrooots support and solidify Hispanic support in San Antonio and Houston. She also attended several fundraisers.
In September, she canceled a public event in Dallas that was scheduled to coincide with a fundraiser.
The last public event Clinton held in Tarrant County was a rally in the Fort Worth Stockyards in 2008 during her first presidential bid.
