Hillary Clinton to fundraise in Fort Lauderdale

Hillary Clinton will hold a fundraiser in Fort Lauderdale May 21, the same day she is in town to speak to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.

The location and time of the fundraiser will be announced that day. Clinton's campaign manager Robby Mook will speak at a fundraiser in Miami May 19. No public events have been announced.

Martin was the black teenager who was fatally shot by a volunteer neighborhood watchman in 2012 in Sanford. His killing set off a national conversation about Florida's Stand Your Ground law and similar laws in other states.

Clinton's last South Florida fundraiser was in April. She beat Bernie Sanders in a landslide in the Florida primary March 15.
