Madeleine Albright is hitting the campaign trail.

The former secretary of state will kick off a two-day campaign swing through Florida on Saturday. She’s the latest in a series of big-name surrogates scheduled to campaign in Florida this weekend.

Albright will kick off the weekend with a canvassing event at noon Saturday at the Aventura Coordinated Campaign Office, 17971 Biscayne Blvd., Suite 201 in Aventura. From there, she’ll head to a canvassing event at 3 p.m. at the Lake Worth Coordinated Campaign Office, 1828 N. Dixie Highway.

She’ll wrap up her weekend in Boca Raton on Sunday. According to the Hillary Clinton campaign, Albright is scheduled to attend a canvassing event at noon at the Boca Raton Coordinated Campaign Office, 2236 N. Dixie Highway in Boca Raton.

Albright was named the first female secretary of state in 1997 under then-President Bill Clinton, becoming the highest ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government at the time.

Before becoming secretary of state, she served as president of the Center for National Policy, was a member of President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Council, and served as chief legislative assistant to U.S. Sen. Edmund Muskie.

According to the Hillary Clinton campaign, Albright will “decry Russia’s attempt to influence the presidential election through election-related hacks and express alarm at (Donald) Trump’s refusal to acknowledge Russia’s involvement while praising Vladimir Putin.”
