Hillary and Bill Appear Together in Davenport


Hillary Clinton was in Iowa on Friday for three Get out the Caucus events. The first of her events was in Des Moines where she spoke about health care. She focused on her plan and explained why the single-payer plan proposed by Bernie Sanders will “never, ever come to pass.” She explained that overhauling the heath care system again would take too long, and the American people don’t have time to wait. Clinton argued that building upon the progress that has been made is a more sensible solution. A video from the event will be added when/if available.

The second stop was in Dubuque where she admitted that some her plans may not be as flashy as some of her opponents’, but she would rather “underpromise and over-deliver” then the other way around. Clinton then spoke about the points of her campaign platform including health care, the economy, taxes, and clean energy. A video from the event in Dubuque is below.


In the final stop of the day, Hillary was joined by Bill in Davenport. Speaking to a crowd of over 1,500, Bill began by talking about her experience and why she would make a great president. He then handed the microphone over to Hillary and she spoke about economy under her husband’s administration and since President Obama has taken office. She argued that only a Democrat is going to continue the progress that has been made. She criticized Republicans for “wanting to go back to what failed us before.” A video from the event is below.

On Saturday and Sunday, Hillary and Bill will be appearing across the state of Iowa in preparation for the February 1st caucus. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
