Following yesterday’s campaign rally, Clinton took her campaign message on the road today to Des Moines, Iowa. Speaking to a crowd at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, Clinton covered a number of points that she hit on yesterday during the kick-off rally in New York, including the Four Fights that serve as the basis of her campaign platform.
For the first time, Clinton addressed the Trans Pacific Partnership trade proposal that has been opposed by Democrats in Congress. She expressed concern about the deal in its current form, but believes that the right partnership can benefit the United States. She said, “I kind of fall in the group that says ‘what’s in it?’ And ‘let’s make it as good as it can be, and then let’s make a decision.'”
While she was in Iowa, Clinton also stopped at a fundraiser in Burlington where she spoke with a group of about 80 people. The focus of her conversation was mental health, a subject that she has learned about by talking to people early in the campaign. She said, “That’s why I do this, I know people are interested to get the razzle-dazzle and the big rallies, but I want to hear from the people, I want to know whats actually happening so that I can come up with proposals that may actually change people’s lives.”
