Bill, Chelsea Campaign in SC


On the eve of the South Carolina primary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton were in the state supporting Hillary Clinton. Bill gave speeches at two Get Out the Vote events. At each event, in Aiken and Bluffton, Bill spoke about Hillary’s experience and background. He also focused on her plans for the future including her proposed updates to heath care and equal pay for women. He said, “She’s for equal pay and paid leave because only seven countries of the world, that don’t grant any paid leave. Every man in America should be for equal pay, because when you put more women in the workforce and the economy grows and you have more money.” He urged those in attendance to vote in tomorrow’s primary and support Hillary.

Meanwhile, in Charleston, Chelsea visited with patience and families at the Medical University of South Carolina Children’s Hospital. She then went to Columbia where she met with local volunteers at a phone bank, then held a town hall event and a Get Out the Vote event. Chelsea spoke about her mother’s platform and stressed the importance of the 2016 race, and she asked voters to support Hillary in tomorrow’s primary.

A fundraiser in support of Hillary for America was also held today in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. The fundraiser was hosted by Jim McGovern, John Mahoney, Mike Moore, Candy Mero Carlson, Gerry D’Amico, Kate Donaghue, Jamie Hoag, Steve Kerrigan, Kim Long, and Jason Palitsch. Speaking at the event was former Massachusetts Representative, Barney Frank.

Tonight, Bill and Chelsea will join Hillary for an event in Columbia. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
