Clinton Speaks at Annual BookExpo in NYC

On Thursday, Hillary Clinton appeared at the annual BookExpo event in New York City. Clinton was interviewed on stage by author Cheryl Strayed, and the two discussed a number of topics including the 2016 election and her upcoming book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Schuster this fall, is said to be inspired by a series of funny, meaningful, and inspirational quotes that Clinton has collected over the years. She said, “This book is, for me, a really personal, deep experience, and I also have to say an emotional catharsis.” Clinton spoke about how writing the book has helped her get through the last several months and inspired her to keep fighting. Watch a video from the event below.

Tim Kaine spoke at three get out the vote events today in Wisconsin. At his first event in Milwaukee, he told the audience that he and Hillary Clinton are excited with only a few days left in the campaign, and they are both determined to win. He called it “an excitement to embrace an agenda that`s a stronger together agenda, and reject an agenda that is a divisive, name calling, blame game, take us backward agenda — and so we`re seeing it pick up in such a great way.” Kaine said that it is important that everyone get out and vote so their voice is heard given the stakes in this election. He concluded by asking everyone not to take a lead in the polls to mean anything, and that everyone’s vote is important. News coverage of Kaine’s Milwaukee visit is below.

Kaine then traveled to Green Bay where he spoke about Clinton’s optimistic platform, and he outlined her plans to create jobs, make college more affordable, raise the minimum wage, and focus on the middle class by building an economy that works for everyone.

He wrapped up his speech by saying that Wisconsin is already making waves with early voting, and he encouraged those who have not already done so, to vote. Watch a video of Kaine’s speech below.

Kaine’s final event was a get out the vote event in La Crosse. Kaine spoke to a crowd of supporters after they watch today’s Green Bay Packers football game.

636138834025675905-ftc1104-clintonrally010

Bill Clinton campaigned for Hillary Clinton today in Colorado. At his first event, Bill spoke to a group of supporters at Union Depot in Pueblo. He outlined key points of Hillary’s platform including her plans to create jobs and build and economy that works for everyone. Throughout his speech, Bill referred to Donald Trump, but never mentioned him by name. He criticized his temperament and lack of experience. He concluded the event by asking everyone to vote for Clinton on Tuesday saying, “If the people vote, she’ll win. I believe she’ll be the first woman president but even those things are not as important as what it will mean for you.”

He then spoke at the EXDO Event Center in Denver where he covered a number of the same topics as in Pueblo including her plans to make college more affordable and pass comprehensive immigration reform. The focus of Bill’s speech was about the type of America we want to build for future generations. Do we want a president who looks to the past or one who plans for the future. “This is a change election — I do agree with her opponent on that. The question is: Are you going to change forward, to build on what we are doing right?  … Or are you going to change backward and go back to trickle down economics on steroids?,” he said. He concluded by asking everyone to get out and vote on Tuesday.

At his final stop of the day in Fort Collins, Bill focused on unity and how Hillary’s plans ensure that Americans are united in enjoying the prosperity offered in the United States. Unlike her opponent who is focused on dividing people to gain votes, Bill argued that Hillary aims to create a stronger and more united country. He urged everyone to vote for Hillary on Tuesday saying, “We’re the longest-lasting democracy in human history and that’s for a reason: We keep making progress toward our more perfect union.” Videos from today’s events will be added when/if available.

Bill Clinton Campaigns for Hillary in Iowa

581a57de001a7-image

Bill Clinton returned to Iowa on Wednesday where he spoke at two events. The first was in Sioux City where he spoke about all the negativity in the campaign cycle. “I hate all this poison that’s in this election. All this utter meanness, it’s unlimited. ” Instead of focusing on the negative, Bill spoke about Hillary Clinton’s optimistic view of America and how she plans to create jobs, grow the economy, and raise the minimum wage. He concluded by asking everyone to vote so their voice is heard. “Tell people they need to be a part of this. Yes, it’s important to have the first woman president and it’s important that the first woman president will be the best qualified person to run, but it’s more important to listen to what those children are saying…It’s just up to us,” he said.

Bill’s final event of the day was in Waterloo. During the event, Bill asked the crowd if they wanted the country to progress or go backward. When the crowd responded that they wanted progress, Bill spoke about a number of Hillary’s plans that are aimed at doing just that. He was optimistic as he spoke about his wife’s plan to create new jobs, create an economy that works for everyone, and build the middle class. Bill attacked Trump’s negative campaign saying, “Hillary says, ‘OK, your frustration and your anger is legitimate, but you need empowerment not resentment.’ And he says, ‘Oh no you don’t. You just keep right on resenting, so I can ride this horse as long as I can.’” He concluded the event by urging everyone to vote. Videos from today’s events will be posted when/if available.

Clinton Has Notched Numerous Endorsements from State Editorial Boards

hillary-logo-jpg-crop-thumbnail-small

Since Friday, editorial boards across the country have continued to endorse Hillary Clinton to be our next president, calling her “the only one qualified” for the job and deeming the contrast between she and Donald Trump “stark.” These endorsements continue the unprecedented, near-universal nature of this year’s editorial board endorsements of Clinton. Even newspapers that have historically backed Republicans have either refused to support Trump or have offered their endorsement to Clinton.

This weekend’s endorsements include one from The State in South Carolina, which had not endorsed a Democrat in 40 years.

Take a look at just some of the state editorials endorsing Clinton since Friday.

Detroit Free Press Endorsement: Hillary Clinton is a prepared, mature choice

The vote will mark the convergence of two historic opportunities for Michigan voters, and America. The first is the chance to shatter a bigoted gender barrier that dates to the nation’s founding by electing a woman — a woman who happens to be one of the best-prepared candidates to seek the presidency in the last century. The second is the necessity to repudiate, once and for all, the unflattering caricature of America conjured by Clinton’s demagogic Republican rival, Trump. The contrast between the candidates’ visions of the country each aspires to lead could not be more stark.

The Daily Iowan: Endorsement: Hillary Clinton

Clinton is by no means perfect — in fact, far from it. But she possesses qualities other candidates simply do not: experience, a proven track record, the correct disposition for the Oval Office, and the policies to back it all up. The DI Editorial Board believes that many factors push Clinton to the top of the pile. But five major policy points in particular have broad impacts on this election: the economy, education, the environment, race relations, and national security. … Clinton proves to be the best, most well-rounded candidate in the race.

Beaver County (Pa.) Times: Editorial: A vote for experience and diplomacy

The former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady has demonstrated throughout her career in public service an appreciation for working in a bipartisan fashion to get things accomplished. She has shown a deep understanding of the issues confronting the nation – both domestically and abroad – and offers reasoned approaches to dealing with them. She has laid out specific plans for job creation tied to improving the nation’s infrastructure; immigration reform that is workable and humane; affordable training and education in growing high-tech fields; and a willingness to reconsider trade agreements that have turned out to be bad deals for American workers. And, as has been one of the hallmarks of her public career, Clinton remains deeply committed to issues involving women’s rights and health care coverage for children. … Clinton offers what the country needs most over the next four years – an understanding of the many complex issues facing the nation and an ability to work with members of both parties to go beyond the divisiveness and work toward the common good. We believe she is both qualified and prepared for that challenge.

Erie Times-News: Our view: Clinton should be nation’s next president

From her time as first lady to her eight years in the Senate to her four-year tenure as secretary of state, Clinton has built a breadth of experience and a record of leadership that equips her to lead the nation through the tricky currents and perilous rapids of these turbulent times. … And Clinton possesses the gravitas and toughness to face the challenges and responsibilities unique to America in a dangerous world. Envisioning her as commander in chief requires no leap of faith, and she certainly brings a more complete portfolio to this moment than Barack Obama did in 2008.

The State: Endorsement: Why conservatives have no option but to support Clinton

Her resume suggests Mrs. Clinton is as prepared as any of this year’s candidates to be an effective president. She played a major role in formulating policy during her husband’s administration, especially in the areas of health care and children. As a U.S. senator from New York, she served on the Armed Services Committee, earning praise from Republican John McCain. She also became secretary of state. … This is the first time our editorial board has endorsed a Democratic presidential nominee since Jimmy Carter in 1976. Through the years, we evaluated nominees based on our support for reducing the national debt, strengthening national security and other conservative values. Those values compel us to endorse Mrs. Clinton this year.

The Patriot Ledger: Our Opinion: Hillary Clinton for president

On Oct. 13, Donald Trump framed the 2016 election this way: “This is our moment of reckoning as a society and as a civilization itself.” He could not be more right, and for that reason we endorse Hillary Clinton for president.Clinton is uniquely qualified for the presidency. More than 30 years of public service give her a decisive edge. She has a record of accomplishments and positions that can be criticized, fairly or not, yet on balance it is her experience that makes her the superior choice by far, and one of the strongest candidates for the office in many years. Clinton has been under heavy scrutiny since long before declaring her candidacy. Despite this, she has proven herself the most stable, competent and knowledgeable candidate on issues that will matter most to Americans and their interests the next four years: Health care. Foreign policy. The economy. Immigration. Climate change.

Daily Hampshire Gazette Editorial: Hillary Clinton will lead with skill and vision

Our choice for the next president is an easy call — Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is clearly the best-suited candidate to lead the nation, by virtue of her experience, her temperament and her vision for an America that reduces the gap between the moneyed elite and the rest of us. During her 18-month campaign, Clinton has offered specific initiatives on many issues, including increased access to health care, debt-free college education, climate change, increasing taxes for the wealthiest and appointing Supreme Court justices who are likely to reduce the influence of big money in politics, safeguard the right to safe and legal abortion and defend the fundamental right to free speech.

Daily Gazette Endorsement: Clinton the clear choice

Of the two major party candidates running for president, Hillary Clinton is the only one qualified and experienced enough to address these problems as president of the United States. In 30 years of public service dating back to her days as a legal aid attorney, through her many years as an advocate for children and families, through eight years as first lady and adviser to her husband, President Bill Clinton, through eight years as a U.S. senator with a well-documented reputation for working across the political aisle, and four years as secretary of state, she has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience needed to perform the most difficult job in the world. … The American people will never find a candidate for president with whom they will all agree. They will not find one who is without political or personal baggage. Of the two candidates seeking the highest office in the land, in a time when the qualities of leadership, experience and a rational demeanor are most needed, there is only one candidate who clearly rises above the other. That person is Hillary Clinton.

Springfield Republican Editorial: The Republican endorses Hillary Clinton in presidential contest

Hillary Clinton, as first lady, as twice-elected U.S. senator from the state of New York, and as secretary of state, demonstrated clearly, time and again, that she can work with those with other views to try to better the world for all Americans. Her history promises that she’d be able to do the same as our nation’s chief executive. Her opponent, reality TV star Trump, hasn’t been able to show that he can even control himself in debates.

Stamford Advocate: Endorsement: Hillary Clinton for president

Take a moment to consider the last century of presidents and ponder which ones had job training comparable to that of Clinton. She knows the Oval Office from the inside as first lady, congressional chambers as senator, and leaders of the world as secretary of state. Young women deserve to live in an America where a woman serves as president. Young men deserve it too. … Electing our first woman president is a pivotal next step in America’s evolution as a country with ideals that have still not been fully realized after 240 years. President Hillary Clinton is the only outcome that furthers those principles this November. The grand experiment that is the United States of America once again needs its people to collectively push it forward.

Albany Times-Union: Editorial: President: Hillary Clinton

The choice America faces Nov. 8 is as stark as it gets. This is an election between a thoroughly qualified candidate and a challenger whose campaign itself keeps descending into disarray. A candidate who understands America’s vital role in the world, and a rival who reduces foreign policy to slogans. A candidate who could be this nation’s first female president and a man who stoops to shamefully degrading talk about women. With a choice so clear, we enthusiastically endorse Hillary Clinton for president of the United States. … By his temperament alone, Mr. Trump is utterly unfit to occupy the office held by such figures as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. And by her experience, empathy and discipline, and armed with a dignity that has withstood withering attacks, Mrs. Clinton clearly is ready to be our next president.

The DePaulia: Editorial: With Vincentian values in mind, Clinton for president

The Vincentian values our university was built on are what we’re told to live up to and think about as we walk around this campus and long after we’re gone. Standing up for justice and asking “what must be done?” have been taught to us since our days in discover or explore classes and as we enter the professional world. For this reason, we believe Hillary Clinton to be the most in line with our values and with what DePaul stands for. She earns our endorsement. … This is only the fifth time the DePaulia has issued an endorsement in its 93 year history. … Hillary Clinton, born in Edgewater and raised in northwest suburban Park Ridge, has answered that call of “what must be done?” her entire life. Following her graduation from law school, Clinton went to the work for the Children’s Defense Fund, where her work helped better the lives of the poor, the disabled and people of color. As First Lady, she was instrumental in creating the Children’s Health Insurance Program. As a senator, she was crucial in securing funding to rebuild Lower Manhattan post- 9/11. And as Secretary of State, Clinton was a vocal advocate for women’s rights and LGBT rights around the world.

Hillary Clinton Endorsed by Newport News Paper

21051510-mmmain

Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of the Daily Press, a newspaper based in Newport New, Virginia. The paper’s editorial board cities Clinton’s experience and temperament in their decision despite her political drawbacks. The board says of the presidency, “Our president sets the tone for foreign and domestic policy, nominates judges to our highest court to steer our legal standards, selects members of the Federal Reserve Board who will have far-reaching effects on our economy and serves as commander-in-chief of our military. The person we choose as our president is also a reflection of how we see ourselves as a nation, the public face we show the rest of the world.” And they concluded Hillary Clinton is the best choice to fulfill that duty.

Hillary’s Plan: Foreign Policy

hillary-logo-jpg-crop-thumbnail-small

Hillary Clinton’s Strong, Steady Approach to Global Challenges vs. Trump’s Dangerously Unserious Approach

The fifth topic on deck for this evening’s debate will address global challenges. Hillary Clinton’s steady leadership has made America stronger and safer on the world stage. As First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State, she has worked tirelessly to keep Americans safe and stay true to our values.  Conversely, Donald Trump’s dangerous national security proposals, lack of understanding of geopolitical realities, and reckless foreign policy rhetoric have been apparent throughout the campaign.

topic-5-image-1

Hillary Clinton has laid out a comprehensive plan to defeat ISIS and keep Americans safe at home.  She understands that it’s not enough just to take out specific groups or leaders – we must have a comprehensive strategy to win the long game against the global terrorist network and its ideology. Former military leaders and top national security officials agree: Hillary is the right choice.

As president, Hillary will:

  • Protect our homeland, including by surging our intelligence to ensure law enforcement has the information they need to detect and disrupt plots.
  • Work with Silicon Valley to shut down terrorist propaganda and disrupt their recruitment efforts online.
  • Keep guns out of the hands of suspected terrorists.
  • Work with our allies to dismantle the global network that supplies money, arms, propaganda and fighters to the terrorists.
  • Choke off the networks that facilitate their growth and expansion.
  • Focus on eliminating the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
  • Take out ISIS’s strongholds in the Middle East by intensifying the coalition air campaign, supporting our partners on the ground, and pursuing diplomacy to end Syria’s civil war and close Iraq’s sectarian divide, because those conflicts are keeping ISIS alive.
  • Stand with our allies, rather than abandoning them.

Despite Trump’s claims that he has a “secret” plan to defeat ISIS, he has no real plan at all. And his rhetoric is dangerously playing into terrorists’ hands.

As president, Trump will:

Engage in torture in the fight against ISIS and kill the families of terrorists.

Hillary Clinton Endorsed by More Local Newspapers

4c498a1fa3498d0d740dfb69e25bea87

This weekend, Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of four major prominent newspapers from across the country. The first was Nebraska’s Omaha World-Herald, the first time the paper has endorsed a Democrat since President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932. The paper’s editorial board says that while Clinton has political faults, she is by far more qualified than Republican Donald Trump. The board concludes, “Clinton’s legislative experience and decades of political involvement — as first lady of Arkansas, first lady of the United States, U.S. senator from New York, secretary of state and two-time presidential candidate — make her the better prepared of the two major candidates for the office of president of the United States.” Read the full endorsement HERE.

The Wisconsin State Journal also published their endorsement of Clinton concluding that the country cannot risk a Trump presidency. The paper’s board said, “Trump’s scandal-a-day campaign has shown he would distract, isolate and embarrass our nation. The world doesn’t need a United States in retreat, nor a stark reset of America’s politics and international posture. The world needs a U.S. president who can actually lead. Clinton is that leader, and the world needs America to get this right.” Read the full article HERE.

Clinton has also earned the endorsement of the New Orleans newspaper The Times-Picayune. The paper’s editorial board says that Clinton is the better choice for New Orleans and Louisiana saying, “As for which candidate is better for Louisiana, there is no contest. Mrs. Clinton is committed to investments in infrastructure, including ports, that would benefit our state. She also wants to offer preschool to every 4-year-old, something that fits Louisiana’s goal of expanding and improving the quality of early childhood education. But for New Orleanians, perhaps the most compelling contrast between Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton is his intolerance and her inclusiveness. New Orleans has diversity in its DNA. A president who routinely degrades African-Americans, Hispanics, Muslims and women could not, and would not, represent us.” Click HERE to read the full endorsement.

In Iowa, The Des Moines Register’s editorial board asked what message Americas wanted to send to a ever interested global community. Do we want to pick the candidate that has run a divisive campaign or one that still believes in the promise of America? The board believes it is important that the American citizens elect a leader that represents our values, and for them that is Clinton. They conclude, “On Election Day, all of us share the privilege and responsibility of protecting the principles on which this country was founded and for which so many others have died: justice, liberty, equality and opportunity for all. In this particular election, only one of the two major-party candidates stands prepared to honor America and uphold its highest ideals. The Des Moines Register endorses Hillary Clinton for president.” Read the full editorial HERE.
