Hillary Clinton headlining forums in Mass., Conn.


STORRS (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton will be headlining forums in Boston and at the University of Connecticut as she considers another run for president in 2016.

The Democratic former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady is set to give a keynote address Wednesday afternoon at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, then travel to UConn in Storrs, Conn., to speak at a contemporary issues forum in the early evening.

The Boston event has been hosted by Simmons College for 35 years and bills itself as the longest-running women’s leadership forum in the country. It’s sold out.

The Edmund Fusco Contemporary Issues Forum at UConn is closed to the public.

Clinton has traveled widely after leaving the State Department to give speeches to industry groups, college students and others.
