Hillary Clinton is headed to the Ocean State to raise money for her presidential bid.

Local Democratic activist Mark Weiner tells Rhode Island Public Radio that Clinton is slated to hold a fundraiser next month at his East Greenwich home.

Two of Clinton's campaign officials visited Providence last month to establish her Rhode Island headquarters.

The Democratic favorite swiftly hit the campaign trail after launching her 2016 presidential campaign in early April, leaving by van from her New York home to Iowa.

Gov. Gina Raimondo announced in April that she'll support Clinton even if former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, her predecessor, decides to run. Chafee has formed an exploratory committee to consider a Democratic presidential campaign.

Clinton campaigned for Raimondo during the governor's race.
