Hillary Clinton Encourages Caucus Goers in Iowa


On Monday, Hillary Clinton hosted three Get Out the Caucus events and encouraged voters to caucus for her on February 1st. The first event of the day was in Waukee, where Clinton spoke to the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines about a number of platform topics, including the Iran nuclear deal and her support for Israel, before taking questions from those in attendance. A video from the event is below.

A second Get Out the Caucus event was held in Knoxville. Clinton spoke about her clean energy plans and how it will benefit Iowa. She then spoke about her faith and her attitude toward charity and mercy. Clinton disagreed with those who use religion to criticize those they disagree with, saying that it goes against everything Christianity stands for. Because the bible teaches forgiveness and acceptance, she said, “My study of the Bible, my many conversations with people of faith, has led me to believe that the most important commandment is to love the Lord with all your heart, and to love your neighbor as yourself.” A of her speech is below.

The final campaign event of the day was in Oskaloosa, where Clinton gave a speech, and, again, answered questions from the audience. She covered a number of her platform points and asked for voters’ support on February 1st. Videos from the event are below.

Today, Clinton is hosting three events across Iowa. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
