PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton is campaigning in Rhode Island on behalf of his wife, Hillary Clinton.

The Clinton campaign announced Monday that Bill Clinton will visit Rhode Island on Thursday ahead of the state’s April 26 presidential primary.

The campaign says Bill Clinton will speak at a public event at a location to be announced later. He’ll talk about why Hillary Clinton is the best candidate to raise wages and help families.

Hillary Clinton is battling Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination. Both candidates recently opened campaign offices in Providence.

The Clinton campaign didn’t say whether Hillary Clinton would come to Rhode Island before the primary. Bill Clinton raised money for the campaign in December in Rhode Island.
