Full event details

Clinton is in a hard-fought battle with Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards for the Democratic nomination. Obama won the Iowa caucus, while Clinton, despite polling before the vote suggesting otherwise, took New Hampshire. Saturday will be the third contest, in Nevada.

Clinton is the third democratic candidate to visit the area, following visits from Obama and Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich. Republican presidential candidate and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani had twice campaigned or appeared at fundraising events in Santa Barbara.

KCSB will broadcast the entire rally live on 91.9 FM and also webcast it at kcsb.org.
