Clinton Speaks at Grassroots Event in St. Louis


On Friday evening, Hillary Clinton followed up her rally in Tulsa with a similar grassroots rally at the Union Hall for Sheet Metal Workers Local 36 in St. Louis, Missouri. After being introduced by Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, Clinton fired up the crowd of 500 with a speech focused on the economy and how she plans to make it work for everyone, not just those at the top. She said, “Our economy does best when we have a Democrat in the White House. It’s just a fact. Their answer to any economic question is, ‘We’re going to cut taxes on the wealthy.’” A video from the event is below (Note: Clinton begins speaking at 2:32:20).

She was also scheduled to attend a private fundraiser while in St. Louis. The event was held at the home of Kim and Bruce Olson. As with all private events, the fundraiser was closed to the press.

Clinton’s next scheduled event is in Minneapolis, Minnesota on December 15. For all the latest, follow our Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
