FT. LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/AP) – Several Republican and Democratic presidential candidates are addressing the National Urban League Conference Friday morning in Ft. Lauderdale.

The candidates will share their visions for saving our cities.

Republican Jeb Bush and Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton are among the presidential hopefuls speaking Friday with the Urban League’s president and CEO, Marc Morial.

The conference marks the first time in the 2016 presidential race that Clinton and Bush are set to appear at the same event. The only other GOP presidential candidate scheduled to appear is its only black candidate, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

Two of Clinton’s rivals, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, also are on the schedule.
