HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is set to address black Democrats in Alabama next month.

The Alabama Democratic Conference says the Democratic front runner will speak at its semi-annual convention in metro Birmingham on Oct. 17.

The group is the black caucus of the Alabama Democratic Party. Longtime chairman Joe Reed issued a statement saying the conference is fortunate to host Clinton.

Alabama has 64 delegates to the Democratic National Convention next year, and Reed says some pledged to Clinton have already qualified.

Clinton will address the Alabama Democratic Conference at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham, which is located in the suburb of Hoover.
