On Friday, Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea Clinton were on the campaign trail and fundraising for Hillary for America. Chelsea was the only Clinton holding public events today. She began in Kentucky where she held an organizing event at the opening of the new Hillary for America office in Lexington. Chelsea addressed supporters who turned out to greet her saying that her mother is the best candidate for president because of her experience and her willingness to work with those who have good ideas, not just people who are a part of the Democratic Party. While in the area, Chelsea also attended a fundraiser in Frankfort that was hosted by Jennifer A. Moore and The Honorable Crit Luallen and Lynn Luallen.
Chelsea then traveled to Indiana where she spoke with supporters at the Hillary for Indiana office in Indianapolis. She spoke about Hillary’s plans to continue the improvement of the health care system and the expansion of early childhood education. As a mother, and a mother to be, Chelsea said that she believes that Hillary is the best candidate for her children’s future. She spoke about her mother’s experience saying, “… it really matters to me that my mom is the only person running for president who has a strong record in being able to deliver progress in areas like healthcare reform and education reform and women’s rights and human rights that she doesn’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good, that she’s willing to work with whomever she needs to work with to be able to get the job done.” While in Indianapolis, Chelsea attended a fundraiser hosted by Senator Evan Bayh, Susan Bayh, and Melina Kennedy.
Bill was in Florida where he attended a series of fundraisers. The first was in Tallahassee and was hosted at the home of Allison Tant and Barry Richard. The second event was in Sarasota and hosted by Nancy Parrish. The final event of his was was in Heathrow and hosted by John Morgan.
