The stop will come between her 3 p.m. stop at the Salisbury Depot and her 6 p.m. appearance at a rally at Time Warner Cable Arena (formerly the Charlotte Bobcats Arena) in Charlotte.
Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, will join her for the Charlotte rally.
Anyone wanting to attend the Clinton event at the Depot here today will go through metal detectors.
The Clinton campaign is advising against bringing signs or bags.
With showers in the weather forecast, the event will be under the covered section adjacent to the tracks. Entry to the site will be from the Council Street side.
After the Salisbury event, Clinton supporters will meet at George’s Italian Grill, 124 E. Innes St., from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Former President Bill Clinton is also making a return trip to the state with several appearances Tuesday and Wednesday.
