Forthcoming this morning is the return of Girl on Top, as Andrea Grimes recaps her experience at last night's Democratic debate in Austin. But here's late-breaking news for our Friends in Dallas and Tarrant counties: Hillary Clinton will speak somewhere between 9 and 11 a.m. today at the intersection of S. Zang Boulevard and Centre Street during what's being called an Early Vote Rally. As in, says the official campaign announcement: "Vote early for Hillary and then join her for a rally in Dallas! Early voting for Hillary takes us one step closer to getting our country back on track." (Perhaps she read this in this week's paper version of Unfair Park?)
Then she'll hustle over to Fort Worth, where she's scheduled to appear between11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the intersection of Main Street & W. 1st Street downtown. Also, after the jump, another missive sent out by the Clinton campaign following the debate: Dallas city council member Pauline Medrano's endorsement of Hillary Clinton. --Robert Wilonsky
