Former Secretary of State and possible presidential contender Hillary Clinton has planned a Minnesota speaking engagement in St. Louis Park Oct. 27, the Associated Press reports.

The 7 p.m. speech will be at Beth El Synagogue, which announced Tuesday that the Clinton visit would be part of its national speaker series, the AP says. Ticket prices range from $100 for general admission to $500 for preferred seating, Star Tribune reports. The synagogue series has drawn big names, including Israel's Ehud Barak, Colin Powell and former President Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton, who left the Secretary of State's office in February, has been on a lucrative national lecture circuit, fueling speculation that she might run for president in 2016.

Meanwhile, potential GOP presidential contenders next month are headed to Clinton's neck of the woods – the Big Apple. Six of the Republican Party’s stars, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sens. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, will headline a fundraiser for the Republican National Committee in New York, POLITICO reports.
