Hillary Clinton will be in Minnesota today.

She's speaking at the American Federation of Teachers convention, which officially starts Monday morning at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

The Democratic nominee for president is expected to go on stage at about 5 p.m., according to the agenda. The American Federation of Teachers notes it was the first national union to endorse Clinton, calling her "a tested leader who is prepared for a tough fight on behalf of all our members."

The union represents about 1.6 million educators around the nation.

The convention will go on for a few days, with more speakers including Gov. Mark Dayton, Rep. Kieth Ellison, Trayvon Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and more. Here's the full list.

How is Hillary doing in the polls?

Among three different national polls that came out Sunday, Clinton has anywhere from a 4- to 6-percentage point lead over her (likely) opponent, Republican probably-nominee-unless-something-crazy-happens Donald Trump.

Some state-specific polls are starting to come out as well, but none for Minnesota yet.

The most recent we have is a Star Tribune poll from late April, in which Clinton came out ahead of Trump 48 percent to 35 percent.

FiveThirtyEight's forecast gives Clinton a 64.9 percent chance to win the election come November.

Trump by the way will headline the Republican National Convention, which starts in Cleveland today. Clinton and the Democrats will get their convention on in Philadelphia next week.
