Michelle Kwan to stump for Hillary Clinton in NE Florida Wednesday, Thursday

Olympian Michelle Kwan is regarded by many as the greatest figure skater in U.S. history.

In the 2016 campaign, she isn’t trying to win medals or accolades for herself; rather, her goal is to help Hillary Clinton win the White House.

And to that end, Kwan serves as a surrogate outreach coordinator for the Clinton campaign — and that role includes a swing through Northeast Florida on Wednesday and Thursday, where she will make a series of strategic stops in St. Augustine, Gainesville, and Jacksonville.

Kwan’s Wednesday includes two voter registration events: a noon staging at Flagler College, followed by a 2 p.m. event at the University of North Florida’s student union.

Kwan also will be at a 6:00 p.m. “Young Leaders Happy Hour” at Spliff’s Gastropub in Downtown Jacksonville.

Thursday finds Kwan in the Gainesville market for her first two events: a noon voter registration event at the University of Florida’s student union, followed up with a 2 p.m. phone bank event at 4056 W. Newberry Road.

Kwan closes out Thursday at 6 p.m. with an office opening on Jacksonville’s Northside at 5238 Norwood Ave.

Kwan joined the Clinton operation last June as a full-time staffer.
