On Thursday, Bill Clinton held two organizing events in Pennsylvania. The first was in Philadelphia where he spoke about Hillary’s experience and plans to continue growing the economy, improving heath care, and making sure everyone has an equal opportunity. Toward the end of his speech, Bill was interrupted by protesters and he engaged them for over ten minutes, but they continued to shout over his answers to their questions and concern prompting him to respond, “I like protesters, but the ones that won’t let you answer are afraid of the truth.”
Bill then spoke at an event in Scranton. Speaking at Scranton High School, Bill focused on Hillary’s platform and her plans to continue the progress of the last eight years. He said, “If you want to do something to make America better, you ought to pick the best change-maker with the best ideas, the best preparation, the best job at this time. If that’s the test, it’s not close. You know her here. You’ve been good to her here. You’ve been good to me here.” Videos from today’s events will be posted when/if available.
In Texas, Chelsea Clinton attended three fundraisers on behalf of Hillary for America. The first was in El Paso where she attended an event hosted by Governor Carlos Hisa. Clinton then attended a fundraiser in San Antonio. The event was held at the home of Jennifer and Saul Perloff. Her final event of the day was in Dallas where she attended an event at the home of Julie Johnson and Sue Moster. Meanwhile, in New York, De’Ara Balenger, Director of Engagement, attended a fundraiser at Artspace.
