June 19 2015: Where are the candidates today?

Where are Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham in their race to the White House today?

Los Ángeles, (ENTRAVISION).- The race to the 2016 presidential elections continues as we close this week with 12 Republican and four Democrat candidates. Here’s what five of them are doing today to get closer to the White House.

Bernie Sanders

Independent senator and Democrat candidate will address the Latino community at the annual NALEO conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. His appearance takes place only one day after Hillary Clinton spoke to the 1200 elected officials. This is expected to give Sanders the opportunity to differentiate himself from his Democrat opponent.

Hillary Clinton

The democrat candidate will be in Los Angeles today, where she will attend three fundraisers. They are being organized by her campaign, which means attendants will be able to make donations of up to $2,700.

Marco Rubio

The republican candidate was scheduled to attend a fundraiser in the city of Sarasota, Florida. However, the event had to be cancelled because there weren’t enough big donors to make his trip worthwhile. “We had a number of people who are out of town. We want to do a significant fundraiser like some of the ones we've done in the past for $150,000 to $200,000,” said Charles Githler from Rubio’s campaign. The fundraiser will be reschedule for fall.

Jeb Bush

Florida’s former governor will end his first week as an official candidate in Tampa, where he is to keynote the annual Lincoln Day dinner of the Hillsborough County Republican Party. Table sponsorships are sold out; however, there’s still an open wait list for individual tickets.

Lindsey Graham

The republican candidate and senator for South Carolina was scheduled to visit New Hampshire this weekend. However, he decided to cancel in light of the violent events that took place in Charleston this week. Graham appeared on The View yesterday, where he further discussed the shooting of nine African-Americans praying inside a church. “But it’s 2015, there are people out there looking for Christians to kill them,” he said. This statement made the headlines as some accuse Graham of downplaying the issue of race and turning it into a religious matter.
