On Saturday, Hillary Rodham Clinton attended two major events in Iowa. The first was a rally at which former President Bill Clinton briefly stumped for his wife before turning the stage over to singer Katy Perry. The former president spoke about his wife’s honesty and trustworthy qualities. Following his remarks, Perry took the stage and sang a number of songs, including “Roar,” a tune that has been played at a number of rallies for Clinton. Before the end of the rally, Hillary Clinton took to the stage and thanked everybody for coming out and thanked Perry and her husband firing up the crowd. A video of former President Clinton’s speech is below.

Last night, Clinton attended a different kind of rally at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Jefferson-Jackson Dinner. Clinton shared the stage with her 2016 Democratic opponents Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley, but she took the opportunity to rally Iowa Democrats to support her. She spoke about a number of key points of her platform including race relations, gun control, and women’s rights. The speech was familiar, but the crowd was energized and Clinton was poised following a string of successes in October. Clinton said, “I’m listening to you, I’m fighting for you, and with your support, Iowa, I’m going to deliver. And together, we’re going to build an America where there are no ceilings for anyone, where no one gets left behind or left out, and yes, where a father can tell his daughter, you can be anything you want to be, including President of the United States of America!” A video of Clinton’s speech is below.

Tomorrow is Clinton’s birthday, and she is scheduled to attend a fundraiser and birthday celebration today. For all the latest, follow our Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
