On Saturday, Hillary Rodham Clinton returned to South Carolina where she attended the Charleston County Democratic Party’s Blue Jamboree. Clinton emphasized her tax plan and promised that she would not raise income taxes on the middle class. The reference was a direct hit on Bernie Sanders, whose health care plan would raise taxes across the board. She said, “Other candidates want to increase taxes for working people and the middle class as part of their health care plans. Well, I don’t want to see your taxes go up.” The other Democratic candidates, Sanders and Martin O’Malley, also gave speeches at the Jamboree. A video of Clinton’s speech will be posted when/if available.
Clinton also attended a private fundraiser while she was in Charleston. The fundraiser was held at the home of Laura and Steve Gates. As with private events, the fundraiser was closed to the press.
