JUST IN: Hillary Clinton Makes Campaign Announcement

Hillary Clinton will return back to her campaign in North Carolina on Thursday, aides said, appearing in Greensboro after an unexpected three-day interruption from the campaign trail.

Clinton was recently diagnosed with pneumonia, and spent Tuesday at her home in Chappaqua, New York, where she watched President Barack Obama’s stump speech in Philadelphia on her behalf, Merrill said. She has no events Wednesday.

“She has spent the day catching up on reading briefings, making calls, and she watched President Obama’s speech in Philadelphia on TV,” Nick Merrill, her campaign spokesman, said.

Clinton was initially eyeing a return to the campaign trail as soon as Wednesday, with aides scouting for a location to deliver a possible speech on the economy. But as the day wore along Tuesday, a person close to the campaign said, it became clear that Clinton would rest for at least one more day.

At her Chappaqua home on Tuesday, where a small group of reporters stood watch, she received six floral deliveries throughout the day. At her Brooklyn headquarters, campaign aides declined to speak about Clinton’s health condition.

She is now scheduled to appear before the Congressional Hispanic Caucus meeting on Thursday night in Washington. Although that was the first scheduled event, aides said an earlier campaign stop is under consideration for Thursday.
