Hillary Clinton Honored at Stephan Weiss Apple Awards

On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton was honored at the annual Stephen Weiss Apple Awards in New York City. She spoke briefly at the event thanking designer Donna Karen. Clinton’s speech was primarily focused on the award ceremony, but she did speak about the importance of continuing in the event of a setback. She said, “It’s easy to be grateful when things go your way, but when things don’t, how you find the resilience in the face of setbacks, how you call on the inner strength that you search for—how you stick with it, well gratitude is one of the ways you can make that happen. To have the gratitude and the inspiration that you need.” A video from the event will be added when/if available.

Clinton Releases First Campaign Ads

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign released two campaign ads that will begin airing in key battleground states, New Hampshire and Iowa. Both ads focus on family and what she learned about family values from her mother, Dorothy. The ads are more personal in nature and show how Clinton was inspired by her mother’s story to seek public office. In the ad she says, “When I think about why I’m doing this I think about my mother Dorothy. She was abandoned by her parents at the age of eight, sent from Chicago to LA to live with grandparents who didn’t want her. But people showed her kindness, gave her a chance.”

Both ads are included in this post.
