Hillary Clinton Campaigns in Purchase, New York


Hillary Clinton wrapped up her two days of campaigning in New York by attending an Organizing Event in Purchase, New York. During the event, she spoke about her plans to expand the job market, raise wages for everyone, and make college more affordable. At one point, Clinton was interrupted by supporters of Bernie Sanders, and she replied to their protests saying, “I know the Bernie people came to say that. We’€™re very sorry you’€™re leaving.” She went on to say, “As they’€™re leaving, I want to say I have earned 9 million votes in this election already. I have 1 million more votes than Donald Trump, and I have 2 1/2 million more votes than Bernie Sanders.” A video of her speech is below.

Before her speech in Purchase, Clinton hosted a backstage rally fundraiser for the campaign. In the evening, Clinton also attended two fundraisers in Massachusetts. The first was in Boston and included Academy Award winning actor Forest Whitaker. The second event was held in Chestnut Hill and was hosted by Stacey and Larry Lucchino.

Tomorrow, Clinton will remain in New York for additional events. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
