On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton did not take a break from the campaign trail following her Super Tuesday wins. Speaking to a group of supporters at the Javits Center, she spent her speech criticizing Republican front-runner Donald Trump, without actually mentioning his name. She said, “You know the stakes in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric from the other side has never been lower. So we’ve got work to do my friends. But not to make America great again. America never stopped being great. We have to make America whole. Instead of building walls, we need to break down barriers that are holding back families and our country.” At the event, Clinton also focused her support of unions and her promise to protect union rights as many members of the audience were union supporters. A video from the event will be added when/if available.

Tonight, Hillary for America is hosting a “I’m with Her” concert at Radio City Music Hall featuring performances Katy Perry, Elton John, and Andra Day. Hillary, Chelsea and Bill also made an appearance. Throughout the concert event, each of the artists took some time to explain why they supported Hillary for president. Perry said, “I’m not voting for her because she’s a woman. I’m voting for her because she’s the right person for the job.” Other guest celebrities also made appearances including Jamie Foxx and Julianne Moore.

This evening, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey hosted a conversational fundraiser in Milton. The event was hosted by Nora Harrington and Andi Piatt. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
