Hillary Clinton returns to Virginia today to discuss work-family balance with women and families in Loudoun County.

Clinton will follow the afternoon event at the Mug-N-Muffin at the Stone Ridge Village Center with two similar stops Tuesday in Kentucky.

Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, led Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, 44 percent to 35 percent among likely Virginia voters in an April 7 survey by Christopher Newport University.

While Trump led among men, 43 percent to 37 percent, Clinton had a dominating lead among women — 52 percent to 29 percent.

In 2012, President Barack Obama topped Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Loudoun County by about 7,100 votes, receiving 81,900 votes to Romney’s 74,794.

Clinton made appearances in Northern Virginia and in Hampton Roads ahead of the March 1 primary, in which she defeated Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Clinton’s appearance in Loudoun County, a large, fast-growing swing county in Northern Virginia, also could be a chance for Clinton to give a boost to LuAnn Bennett, the Democratic challenger to Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-10th.

Comstock has said Trump has not earned her support.
