Following Hillary Clinton’s primary win in New York, the focus has turned to next week’s primaries. Pennsylvania is one of five states holding a primary on Tuesday, and Bill Clinton was campaigning on behalf of his wife in Johnstown. Speaking with supporters at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, Bill spoke about his wife’s experience and qualifications as president. He outlined a number of her platform points including her plans to tackle income inequality, regulate Wall Street shadow banking, reduce student debt, and lower the cost of higher education. On the topic of the rising cost of college, he said, “Anybody that goes to a school with reasonable tuition and a decent graduation rate should qualify for help. Everybody that needs free tuition should get it.” A video of his speech will be added when/if available.
Chelsea Clinton was in Connecticut, another state with a primary next Tuesday, where she attended two fundraisers. The first was in Hartford and included a conversation with Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen. The second event was held in West Hartford. Chelsea attended a fundraiser at the home of Shari and Michael Cantor.
Bill and Chelsea were not the only supporters on the campaign trail for Hillary for America.
