Clinton Returns to Arkansas

071815_hillary_clinton_1_ap_1160x629Hillary Rodham Clinton began her Saturday morning by attending a private fundraiser in Davenport, Iowa where she spoke about a wide variety of topics including the recent nuclear agreement with Iran. After leaving Iowa, Clinton returned to a state she knows well, Arkansas. Since her husband, Bill Clinton, was governor of the state, Arkansas has become a Republican strong hold. Clinton’s appearance at the Arkansas Democratic Party’s annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Little Rock was intended to boost the party.

During her speech, Clinton addressed a number of topics including points she made in her economic speech earlier in the week. She also addressed comments made by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump who questioned the heroism of Senator John McCain, who was held prisoner during his tour of duty in Vietnam. Clinton called Trump’s comments “shameful” defended McCain, who she has called a friend, saying “there’s nothing funny about the hate [Trump] is spewing at immigrants and families — and now the insults he has directed at a genuine war hero, Sen. John McCain.” A video of Clinton’s speech is below (Note: Clinton’s speech begins at the 7:20 mark).

This coming week, Clinton is expected to make appearances in Michigan and Pennsylvania. Until then, follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for all the latest updates.
