Sen. Hillary Clinton, a Democratic presidential hopeful, will visit Tucson on Saturday from 4-6 p.m.

The event, billed as a townhall on “Solutions for the American Economy,” will be at UA’s Bear Down Gymnasium, 1428 E. University Blvd.

The main doors of Bear Down Gym, on the north side of the building, will open to a first-come, first-served crowd at 4 p.m., according to a UA news release.

Parking is free at the Cherry Street, Second Street and Sixth Street garages.

Motorists are advised that parking may be limited near McKale Center because of a women’s basketball game that begins at 2 p.m.

No food, drinks or bags other than purses will be allowed into the event. Recording devices are allowed, the news release said.

Hillary Clinton has visited Tucson once before during the campaign but it was a private fundraiser. She also visited Laveen, in the Phoenix area, last month.

Former President Bill Clinton was at Arizona State University on Thursday.

Sen. Barack Obama has yet to visit Tucson in his quest to win the Democratic nomination, but he opened an office here at 4500 E. Speedway Blvd. Obama appeared at a rally in Phoenix on Wednesday that more than 10,000 attended.

A recent poll shows 45 percent of Democrats who voted in at least three of the last six Arizona elections either supported Clinton or were leaning toward her. The corresponding figures were 24 percent for Obama and 9 percent for John Edwards, who has since dropped out of the race.

The poll of 741 people was conducted Jan. 17-20 by the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University and Channel 8/KAET-TV. The survey has a sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
