On Sunday, Hillary Clinton took a break from the campaign trail to meet with city leaders and residents of Flint, Michigan. Flint has been in the news for its struggle with poor water quality. During a town hall held at House of Prayer Missionary Baptist Church, Clinton spoke saying that what is happening in Flint is “immoral.” State officials have been criticized for being slow to act, but Clinton has brought up the struggle of Flint residents several times during the Democratic debates and has sent advisers to the city to keep up to date. Clinton praised Mayor Karen Weaver for her work to help her citizens, and urged Congress to pass a $200 million bill to upgrade the city’s crumbling infrastructure. A video from Clinton remarks is below.

Tomorrow, Clinton will return to New Hampshire for the final day of campaigning before Tuesday’s primary. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
