Hillary Clinton cancelled her planned appearance in San Diego after protesters made it clear she was unwelcome in the city.
Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11. She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite.
The three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend.
Jan Iverson created an organization called “The Difference Matters” to protest Mrs. Clinton’s quest for the presidency, because of her role in Benghazi.
“She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don’t want her here,” said Iverson.
Pat Smith lost her son, Sean Smith, during an attack in Benghazi and plans to be at the center of the protest, Iverson said.
“Working with her is gratifying, and it spurs on what we are doing,” Iverson said.
Dr. Ted Mazer believes people should put politics aside, because Clinton is well versed on the hottest topic at the conference.
