Hillary Clinton plans to open Miami headquarters this week

Miami’s hipster Wynwood neighborhood may not quite compare to New York’s Brooklyn. But like Brooklyn, Wynwood will soon be home to a hot political office: the South Florida headquarters for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The campaign plans to formally open its field office Saturday, July 9, at 2215 NW 1st Pl., according to Simone Ward, Clinton’s Florida director.

“Miami — and South Florida in general — are going to be a large part of our strategy for success. It is a major [get out the vote] universe for any presidential campaign, and in particular ours,” she said. “The Secretary has a commitment I can share that all people in Florida are represented by the campaign. What better place to do that than South Florida? It’s a city and a town that represents many different cultures, many different communities.”

Clinton’s state headquarters are in Tampa, where more field offices are also in the works.
