The need for a larger venue has prompted former president Bill Clinton to move his campaign stop Sunday to North Medford High School’s gym, officials said.

Clinton was originally set to appear at Hedrick Middle School, but that school’s gym proved insufficient to meet space demands, said Isaac Baker, a Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman.

"We wanted to make sure thousands of people were not turned away," Baker said. "The move will accommodate many more people."

Space at North is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

"The doors open at 4:30 p.m.," said Milt Goldman, who is leading Hillary Clinton’s campaign in Jackson County.

The former president will be in town to rally support for Sen. Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House.

The event is scheduled from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the school’s gym at 1900 North Keene Way Drive. Clinton campaign officials say the appearance is free and open to the public, but they recommend registering at www.hillaryclinton.com/medford.

Bill Clinton will also visit Portland, Bend and Salem Sunday and Monday as a prelude to an Oregon appearance by the presidential candidate.

Campaign spokesman Isaac Baker said Hillary Clinton "will be campaigning aggressively all over Oregon, including campaigning aggressively in Southern Oregon." No dates have been announced.
