Former President Bill Clinton is cancelling his North Florida bus tour campaign for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Starting Friday, Former President Clinton was set to launch his “Stronger Together” bus tour. He was expected to travel to Panama City, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville to talk about Hillary Clinton’s economic plan. Some additional stops were planned as well.

But, Wednesday, the Clinton campaign announced Bill Clinton’s travel plans were canceled because he and wife would be attending the funeral services for his friend, Shimon Peres—the former Israeli President who passed away Wednesday at 93.
