Chelsea kicked off the day at a Get Out the Caucus event in Duluth, where she was joined by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton. Chelsea spoke about the importance of the 2016 election, especially for the for the Supreme Court. “If you look at the age of the justices on the Supreme Court and the average age of retirement, the next president could appoint one, two or even another three justices to the Supreme Court,” she said. Chelsea also spoke about a number of her mother’s platform points including gun control, higher education, voting rights, and the economy.

Chelsea’s final event of the day was a Get Out the Caucus rally in Lincoln, Nebraska. During the event, Chelsea spoke about her mother’s experience the what is at stake for the next president, especially in regards to the Supreme Court. She explained, “I think we need a president that understands that we don’t live in a single issue country and that we can’t treat the Supreme Court as a single issue institution.” A video from the event will be posted when/if available.

Bill spent the eve of Super Tuesday in Texas where he attended three Get Out the Vote events. The first event was in Houston where he spoke to a crowd of supporters at the Buffalo Soldiers Museum. During his speech, Bill shifted his message from contrasting Hillary from her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, to contrasting her with her Republicans rivals. He said, “When Republicans say they’ll make America great again, we never stopped being great, but we need to be made whole again.”

The second stop for Bill came at Tarrant County College’s Trinity River campus in Forth Worth. During the event, he spoke about his wife’s experience and her plans to improve heath care, reduce the cost of higher education, and continue to grow the economy. He asked supporters to vote for Hillary in tomorrow’s Texas primary saying that she is the best qualified candidate to be president.

Bill’s final stop was in San Antonio where he spoke at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center Theatre. During the event, he spoke about immigration reform and criticized Republicans for their proposals making it more difficult to attain American citizenship. Bill also spoke about Hillary’s plans to improve America as a whole and not only focus on the wealthy class. He said, “The reason Hillary should be president is because she wants us to all rise together.” Videos from today’s events will be posted when/if available.

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday! Chelsea will remain in Nebraska for an early event, but is expected to join Bill and Hillary in Florida tomorrow night for a Super Tuesday Event. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
