Clinton Presents Award Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala

rts3nhtOn Thursday evening, Hillary Rodham Clinton presented an award at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala. She presented a 2015 Medallion of Excellence Award to her friend and celebrity chef José Andrés. Clinton took the opportunity to criticize Republicans and lack of support for common sense immigration reform. During her speech, she was interrupted by a protester from United We Dream Action. Clinton continued with her speech and the heckler was removed from the room. A video from the full gala event is available on C-SPAN. Clinton begins speaking at the 5:00 mark and speaks for about five minutes.

Following the event, Clinton attended a private fundraiser in Washington, DC. The event was held at the home of Carol and David Pensky. As with all private events, it was closed to the public.

Clinton’s next scheduled event is the first Democratic debate that will air this coming Tuesday on CNN. For all the latest, follow our Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
