On Sunday, Hillary Clinton attended events in two of Super Tuesday’s primary states: Tennessee and Arkansas. She began by attending church service at Greater Imani Cathedral of Faith in Memphis. She told the congregation that she believed America is still great, but work needs to be done to “make it whole again.” Clinton then attended services at the Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church where she expressed her confidence in the future saying, “I am very confident, not just hopeful, I am confident that if we start working together again, if we remembered we are the United States of America, if we reject the demagoguery, the prejudice, the paranoia, the mean spiritedness we hear in our public political discourse … America’s best days can still be ahead of us.”

In Nashville, Clinton gave a platform focused stump speech before the state’s primary on Tuesday. She focused on the differences between her and her Democratic rival, Bernie Sanders, although she never mentioned him by name. She spoke about her plans to make higher education more affordable, improve heath care (and not scrap the current system), and reform the criminal justice system. She also called for a simpler way for small businesses to get government assistance as well an increase in the minimum wage. A partial video from the event is below, and a full video will be posted when/if available.

Clinton wrapped up the day at a Get Out the Vote event in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Speaking at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, Clinton spoke about her plans to assist students pay for college saying, “we’ve got to get college affordable again.” She criticized Sanders’ free education for all plan saying that a tiered plan made more sense. She reasoned, “I don’t think you should have to pay to send Donald Trump’s kids to school.” Clinton also spoke about a number of other issues including health care and the economy. A full video from the event is below.
