Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is set to introduce Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton Monday afternoon at a campaign event in Omaha. 

 

CBS News reported the news Monday morning. 

Clinton’s campaign is looking to highlight support from the business community where she will talk about her plans for job creation.

Buffett is the latest business leader to back Clinton over Republican Donald Trump.

Clinton appeared with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban in Pittsburgh over the weekend.

 We can expect that very direct message about business and jobs. 

What will be interesting is how people attending this event from communities like North Omaha who aren't business leaders, everyday people, will respond to her plan. 

Folks were already lining up at 5:00 am. 

Many of them saying they support the candidate. 

For others, its about the significance of a woman running as the nominee from a major party. 

Bethany Gohres drove six hours with her young son and daughter from La Crosse, Wisconsin. 

“ I think it would be cool for her to look back on history, she doesn't understand it now but one day she'll understand it,” she said.

They were already letting some of the folks lining up come in and get out of the heat and use the restrooms Monday morning.

Clinton is set to speech sometime after 4:30 p.m.

Doors are set to open at 2:45 p.m. at Omaha North High School near 36th and Ames.
