On Tuesday, Hillary Rodham Clinton wrapped up her trip to New Hampshire by unveiling her plan to overhaul the Department of Veterans Affairs. She then went to Hanover where she attended a forum hosted by Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business. The forum was moderated by Former New Hampshire Governor John Lynch. In Clinton’s opening remarks, she called for equal pay, paid sick leave, immigration, and continued economic growth. The discussion largely focused on business and the economy. Speaking about equal pay and paid sick and family leave, Clinton said, ““Policies like these are often seen as luxuries or kind of dismissed as family issues or even women’s issues — as though that somehow makes them less important — but in fact they are growth strategies.” Clinton also took questions from those in attendance. A video from the forum will be posted when/if available.
On Tuesday evening, Clinton left New Hampshire and stopped for a fundraiser in Buffalo, New York. The fundraiser was coordinated by the Erie County Democratic Committee and attended by a fairly decent size crowd that included Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. As with all private events, the fundraiser was closed to the press.
Tonight, Clinton is scheduled to attend a fundraiser in New York City as she prepares for the next Democratic debate on Saturday. For all the latest, follow our Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
