NEW HAVEN - Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton spoke to a group of working class families at a private event in New Haven Saturday afternoon.

Clinton was joined by Rep. Rosa DeLauro and other officials at a local business on Temple Street.

The former secretary of state covered a number of issues she says are important, including the need to increase wages for working families in America.

"I think it is way past time that we have a raise in the nationwide minimum wage," said Clinton.

She is expected to make an appearance at the University of Bridgeport Sunday afternoon, ahead of Tuesday's primary.

Clinton's opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders will make an appearance in New Haven Sunday and Hartford on Monday.
