On Thursday, Bill Clinton spoke at the one of the first campaign events for Hillary Clinton in Rhode Island. He spoke at an organizing event on the campus of the Community College of Rhode Island where he was joined by Governor Gina Raimondo. Bill’s speech touched on a wide variety of Hillary’s platform topics including the economy and jobs, health care, the rising costs of higher education, and the importance of the 2016 election. He asked for voters support on April 26 and added, “You’ve been good to me, Rhode Island. You’ve been good to Hillary. You don’t owe us anything. But Hillary feels she does owe you a straightforward account of what the next president can do so we can all rise together.” A video from today’s event will be posted when/if available.
Following the event in Rhode Island, Bill went on to attend two fundraisers. The first was in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts and was hosted by Mark and Audrey Schuster. The second event was held in Newton, Massachusetts and was held at the home of Dr. Kevin and Caron Tabb. Meanwhile, Chelsea Clinton attended a fundraising event in New York City. The event was hosted by Diane von Furstenburg and included Eva Chen, Audrey Gelman, Aurora James, Mia Moretti, Lilliana Vazquez, and Emily Weiss. A second fundraiser was held in New York City and was hosted by Campaign Chair John Podesta.
