For her second day in Iowa, Clinton attended two town hall events. The first was at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon. Clinton spoke briefly about the primary points of her platform before taking questions from those in attendance. Among the topics that Clinton covered were gun control, Kim Davis’, Rowan County, Kentucky County Clerk, refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, and her distaste for super PACs. Specifically about PACs and their lack of transparency, Clinton said, “I and others have said we’re not going to unilaterally disarm while the Republicans and the Koch brothers are out there raising money that they don’t even tell you where it came from.”
Later in the afternoon, Clinton took part in a town hall at the Westfair Amphitheater on the fairgrounds in Council Bluffs. Clinton addressed a number of topics including the economy, equal pay for women, immigration reform, gun control, and making higher education more affordable. Heath care continues to be a topic for concern for Clinton, and she continues to call for lower prescription drug prices saying, “We need people who are just going to rise up —you have to sell drugs at affordable prices in this country. That’s what I’m going to be fighting for every single day.”
Videos from today’s events will be posted when/if available.
Tomorrow, Clinton is going to outline her plans for Wall Street reform and regulation, and she will be on hand at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala to present the CHCI Chair’s Medallion Award to world-renowned chef José Andrés.
