Today, Hillary Rodham Clinton attended three fundraisers and an organizing event. The fundraisers were all private and closed the press, but we do know that two took place in the Denver area and one in Aspen. Colorado is fast becoming an important state in the 2016 primary and today’s trip marked Clinton’s first visit to the state since announcing her candidacy for president in April.

This evening, Clinton attended a “Commit to Vote” event in Denver. During her speech, she went on the offensive attacking Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush for attacking women’s health funding and Planned Parenthood. She said, “The Bush campaign claims that what Jeb Bush meant to say is we should just de-fund Planned Parenthood, as if that makes it any better. Where women go for cancer screenings and all kinds of other preventive health measures.”

A video from today’s event will be posted if/when available.

Tomorrow, Clinton is expected to make stops in Utah and Oregon before spending time in California. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for all the latest updates.
