COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to return to Ohio this week, with a campaign visit planned to the capital of the perennial battleground state.

Clinton will headline a “Women for Hillary” grassroots organizing meeting Thursday in downtown Columbus. The Democrat’s presidential campaign said she’s expected to discuss topics such as equal pay for women, paid leave, reproductive rights and child care. Clinton has made the issues a key part of her campaign this time.

The Democratic presidential candidate visited Cleveland late last month, where she spoke at a rally with 2,800 people at Case Western Reserve University.

She’s been working to build out her local infrastructure of volunteers in Ohio ahead of next year’s primary.

Clinton previously carried the state in her unsuccessful 2008 Democratic primary bid against Barack Obama.
