Hillary Clinton spent the final day of the campaign speaking at events in three states. She began at an event in Oakland, Pennsylvania where she outlined her vision of America and said that she wants “to be the president for all Americans, not just some.” She never mentioned Donald Trump by name, but she urged everyone to “rise above all of this hate-filled rhetoric.” She concluded her speech by asking everyone to get out and vote tomorrow adding, “I’m here to ask you to vote for yourselves, vote for your families, vote for your futures. … Because they are on the ballot.” A video from the event is below.

Clinton then traveled to Allendale, Michigan for a get out the vote rally on the campus of Grand Valley State University. Clinton focused more on her platform and the future of the country than she did her opponent. She spoke about her plans to create jobs, improve health care, make college more affordable, raise the minimum wage, and ensure equal pay for women. She said that if elected president, she will work for everyone and looks forward to working with Senators Debbie Stabenow and Bernie Sanders to pass a platform aimed at helping all Americans. Clinton concluded her speech by asking everyone to vote tomorrow. Watch a video of her speech below.

In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a rally was held in front of a crowd of several thousand. The event began with musical performances by Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen. Bill and Chelsea Clinton then took the stage and briefly spoke about the importance of the election. Next, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama each spoke about Clinton’s platform and how she is the only candidate to carry on the legacy of the Obama administration. When Clinton took the stage, she urged everyone to consider the future of the country saying that she is optimistic. She concluded by asking everyone to get out and vote tomorrow. A video from the event is below.

Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea wrapped up the campaign at a midnight rally in Raleigh, North Carolina. The event opened with performances by Jon Bon Jovi and Lady Gaga, then Chelsea and Bill spoke. They spoke about the campaign and the importance of voting tomorrow. When Hillary took the stage, shorty before 1 am, she spoke about her optimistic vision of the future and urged everyone to vote for the future they envision for our country. “I believe it’s the most important election of our lifetime. It’s not just my name or Donald Trump’s name on the ballot, it’s the kind of country you want,” she said. A video from the event is below.

She also went after Donald Trump for his divisive rhetoric and his comments about various groups including women, Muslims, immigrants, and African Americans. Clinton said that Trump’s comments are encouraging others adding, “He’s giving a dog whistle to his supporters.

A video from the event is below.

Clinton then traveled to Raleigh where she was joined by Senator Bernie Sanders and singer Pharrell Williams.

Clinton said that she understands that not everyone supports her and there will be people that vote for Trump, but she wants to be a president for everyone. “I want to be the president for every American – Democrats, Republicans, independents. We have to bring this country together. We have to have everyone pulling in the same direction. I understand some people are angry, but anger is not a plan,” she said.

Review: Newspapers Endorsing Hillary Clinton

Hillary_for_America_2016_logo.svg

Hillary for America released the following rundown of all the newspapers from across the country that have endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.

As Republicans abandon Donald Trump in an act of self-preservation – coming to the long overdue conclusion they could have made months ago – newspapers across the country continue to show near-unanimous agreement in endorsing Hillary Clinton for President. One newspaper, The Columbus Dispatch, is endorsing a Democrat for the first time in 100 years.

From Florida and Pennsylvania to Colorado and Ohio, editorial boards continued to weigh in this week to make the affirmative case that Hillary Clinton is, by far, the best choice for President.

A selection of this week’s endorsements include:

FLORIDA

Tampa Bay Times: Times Recommends: Hillary Clinton for President

October 6, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton is the only candidate for president with the values, experience and knowledge to meet the challenges at home and abroad. Donald Trump is stunningly unprepared and temperamentally unfit for the presidency, and he has played upon our deepest fears and worst impulses with reckless rhetoric, wild promises and flagrant disregard for the truth. His bombast makes for entertaining television, but it is not suited for the Oval Office.

Sun Sentinel: Sun Sentinel Editorial Board Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

September 30, 2016

Excerpt: The very bottom line? Trump is not qualified. Hillary is fully qualified to serve as president of the United States. Use your vote to swing this swing state to Hillary.

IOWA

The Hawk Eye: Our Endorsement – Hillary Clinton

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton should be — and we believe will be — the next president of the United States. It will be as historic an election — the first woman to be elected president — as it was in 2008 when Barack Obama became the first black American to win the presidency.

Clinton Herald: Why Hillary Clinton is Best Choice for President

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton’s record of public service and detailed knowledge of the complex and imposing issues the nation will confront in the next four years make her the superior choice to become the next president.

OHIO

The Columbus Dispatch: For President | Trump unfit, Clinton is qualified

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: For us, the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is not pleasant, but it isn’t difficult. Republican candidate Donald Trump is unfit to be president of the United States. Democrat Hillary Clinton, despite her flaws, is well-equipped for the job.

Cleveland Plain Dealer: In the Matter of Our Endorsement for the President of the United States of America…

October 9, 2016

  • Elizabeth Sullivan: “In a head-to-head, it’s evident despite her flaws that she understands diplomacy, she knows how to work the room on Capitol Hill, she understands the power of words and how to use them and – most important of all – she will not be reckless. Let me repeat that: Hillary Clinton will not be reckless. Trump will, it’s guaranteed. There is only one choice this year to keep Donald Trump out of the White House and to ensure a rational, non catastrophic next four years. That is a vote for Hillary.”
  • Sharon Broussard: “If you could stomach it, Trump would be great entertainment on a political reality show. But the Oval Office is the real deal and he should be nowhere near it. Vote for Clinton.”
  • Thomas Suddes: “You don’t have to like Hillary Clinton or for that matter to loathe Donald Trump to consider Clinton the better presidential prospect. She is. Demonstrably.”
  • Mark Vosburgh: “But the words he has used during the campaign are what mark him as unfit for public office, or even a stool at a respectable tavern. His utterances are the most reckless, untruthful and hateful of any major-party presidential candidate in the 44 years that I have been of voting age. […] So, by default, I voted to endorse Clinton and will mark by ballot accordingly.”

PENNSYLVANIA

The Tribune Democrat: Hillary Clinton the Only Choice for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: For all his rhetoric and brash statements, Trump has provided no specific plans for making America “great again” – his campaign pledge – nothing to generate confidence in how he would operate in the White House. […] The job of president requires resolve, refinement, vision and a dose of humility – none of which Trump has displayed during the campaign. The Democratic nominee is the only viable candidate for president.

Penn Live: For President, the Only Choice is Hillary Clinton

October 6, 2016

Excerpt: Our endorsement here, then, is based on an examination of the challenges facing the nation and the candidate best-suited to address them. That candidate, hands down, is Hillary Clinton.

NEVADA

Las Vegas Sun: We Endorse Clinton for President and Implore Voters to be Responsible

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: With absolute confidence in her abilities and our nation’s bright future, we enthusiastically endorse Hillary Clinton for president.

NORTH CAROLINA

Raleigh News & Observer: For President: Hillary Clinton

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: As a candidate, Clinton will not win by dividing and offering hollow promises of huge tax cuts and restoring some mythical former America. She will win on knowledge, competence and grit. On the campaign trail, she connects with crowds by acknowledging their needs and raising their hopes. Trump says America is in decline. Clinton sees it rising into the promise of a new century. No candidate has ever been more qualified. She will be an excellent president. Vote for Hillary Clinton.

The Charlotte Observer: For president: A Flawed, But Capable, Clinton

October 1, 2016

Excerpt: But the sum of Clinton’s flaws adds up to far less than the danger of Donald Trump. The Republican nominee is a man unfit for the presidency, and one who would steer our country toward peril. For that reason alone – although there are others – we endorse Hillary Clinton for president.

ALABAMA

AL.com: Endorsement: We’re with Hillary Clinton. Frankly, Donald Trump’s dangerous.

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Donald Trump must not be president.

The Cullman Times: Clinton Only Choice for President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: Trump shows little understanding of the complexities of domestic and international challenges. His thin skin, impulsiveness and temperament make him a high risk in tense situations. He of- fers no ideas on how to address increasing racial unrest in urban cities. He cavalierly promises to destroy ISIS with military power and illegal torture. He talks of abandoning NATO and terminating longstanding defense agreements with Japan and South Korea. If elected, there is a strong possibility he might isolate the United States from the world no matter the dire consequences.

CALIFORNIA

The Fresno Bee: Clinton Will Give More Americans an Opportunity to Succeed

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: Based on her positions on the big issues of our time – the economy, taxes, immigration, the global war on terrorism, policing, gun control and climate change – and her huge edge in public service experience and temperament over her chief rival, we recommend Hillary Clinton as the strong, steady and compassionate leader America needs in the White House.

Ventura County Star: Hillary Clinton Should Be Our Next President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: When you vote for president, the Ventura County Star Editorial Board strongly urges you to select Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump does not have the personal qualities, experience, temperament or values to be president of the United States. More than that, we believe a Trump presidency could be dangerous for the future of this nation, domestically and particularly in our relations with the world.

COLORADO

The Denver Post: It’s an Easy Call: Hillary Clinton for President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: Democrat Hillary Clinton, the first woman ever to win a major-party nomination, is without question the most qualified candidate in the race for president and an easy call to make when considering the challenges confronting the nation. Her nearly 40 years in public life have instilled in her the temperament she needs to face the many challenges that await.

CONNECTICUT

The Day: Hillary Clinton is the Candidate Ready to Lead

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Americans must reject promises that industrial jobs can suddenly be restored by renegotiating trade deals, a tactic that instead invites economically damaging trade wars. They must reject a huckster who says he can quickly dispatch of our enemies with a secret plan. They must reject the un-American notions of rounding up millions of people for mass deportation or banning, because of irrational fears, members of a specific religious group from entering our country.  They must reject a candidate who ignores the scientific evidence of man-made climate change and who would roll back hard-won reproductive rights for women. Instead they should elect the candidate who has demonstrated she is ready for the job. The Day endorses Hillary Clinton for president.

The Hartford Courant: The Courant Endorses Hillary Clinton

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: America needs a president who will lead with reason, not instinct; who will unite, not divide. Mrs. Clinton has, as President Barack Obama said, the compassion and the heart for the job.

GEORGIA

The Daily Citizen: Hillary Clinton is Our Choice for President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: We believe Democrat Hillary Clinton’s policies, plans and ambitions offer more balance and reliability for the nation than gambling on the risky promises of Republican Donald Trump. She has the political leadership competencies to steer a steady course in a time of increasing turmoil at home and around the world.

ILLINOIS

Effingham Daily News: Our View: Effingham Daily News Endorses Clinton

October 6, 2016

Excerpt: Trump is not qualified to lead and should not be elected. Agreeing are high-ranking members of the party he has usurped with bombastic appeals to fear and intolerance. We question his competence to lead anything, much less this nation. He is a man so full of insecurities, paranoia and outright bigotry that his only accomplishment during an unlikely run for the presidency has been to divide this country even more than it already was – something we thought impossible a year ago.

INDIANA

Tribune Star: For presidency, Clinton the Clear Choice

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton is clearly the better choice to serve as America’s 45th president in a complex world. Her skill set and experience match the deep and broad demands of that difficult office. Trump, through his immature actions and statements, has conclusively proven that he represents a threat to the republic and the values upon which its foundation was built.

Kokomo Tribune: Hillary Clinton for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: He has a disturbing self-heralded history of womanizing. He battled with one of our nation’s Gold Star families. He boasts he was “smart” to avoid paying federal income taxes and uses business debt for self-enrichment. He doesn’t share the values important to Hoosiers: generosity, humility and servanthood. We know who we are. We know Hillary Clinton’s record of public service and intricate knowledge of domestic and foreign policy make her the best choice for president.

MAINE

Bangor Daily News: Hillary Clinton Has the Vision, Experience and Temperament to Serve as Our Next President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: For us, the choice isn’t between the proverbial lesser of two evils. The choice is between voting for someone committed to a life of public service who has the experience, the intelligence and the temperament to lead the nation versus someone who is committed only to himself, who lies constantly and who regularly displays a lack of self-control.

MASSACHUSETTS

The Boston Globe: Hillary Clinton for President

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: This election isn’t a close call. Only one candidate on the ballot Nov. 8 belongs anywhere near the White House, and it’s Hillary Clinton. The Globe enthusiastically endorses her candidacy, and urges voters to run, not walk, to their nearest polling place when early voting begins in Massachusetts on Oct. 24.

MISSOURI

The Joplin Globe: Our View: A Nation at Risk

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: When it comes to the future security of America — the most important issue of our time — Clinton is the candidate who makes the most sense.

St. Louis Post Dispatch: Hillary Clinton for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: The presidency is the most revered office in the land and America’s most precious possession. In Donald Trump’s hands, it would be a plaything. Clinton understands what an awesome responsibility it is to lead a nation because she has spent the bulk of her adult life participating in that very endeavor. That’s why she remains: America’s only choice.

NEW YORK

Press Republican: Why We Support Clinton for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Clinton is a smart, strong woman who has the experience, wisdom, restraint and intricate knowledge needed to deal with war, terrorism, nuclear threats and the many other challenges America faces in dangerous times.

Niagara Gazette: We Endorse Hillary Clinton for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: In this year’s presidential race, only one candidate has any idea what it means to serve something greater than self or the proven ability to do so, and that candidate is Hillary Clinton. Clinton has significant experience as a public servant, including eight years as First Lady, eight as a U.S. Senator and four as Secretary of State. She is smart, diplomatic, poised and worldly. She has a clear-eyed take on the universe and her place in it. She is an adult.

OKLAHOMA

McAlester News-Capital: MC-C Endorses Hillary Clinton

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Simply put, Clinton is the one candidate who presents the opportunity for steady, reliable leadership abroad and here at home. Trump’s policies, meanwhile, represent a dark, dangerous direction for the nation if implemented. As America struggles with political and racial division, the president of this country needs to have a calm, reasoned approach and be a unifier — not a divider. Trump’s comments and positions on immigration are inflammatory and insulting to a huge swath of Americans.

Enid News & Eagle: Hillary Clinton is Our Choice for Commander in Chief

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: Realistically, we have only two candidates for president, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, though other names will appear on the ballot. As has been demonstrated time and again in recent months, Trump does not have the skills, experience or temperament to hold office. For voters, Clinton is the only reasonable choice.

SOUTH CAROLINA

Myrtle Beach Sun News: Clinton By Far the Better Choice for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Clinton is the better choice for president because of her knowledge and command of critical issues and policy, domestic and foreign, her experience and long service to people, and her temperament. She has served as secretary of state, U.S. senator and First Lady. We understand that many people do not trust Clinton; we do not fully understand why so many who resent or fear her simply accept Trump’s many shortcomings as a potential president.

WASHINGTON

The Olympian: Clinton for President? In a heartbeat

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: This election needs to be over. Our country needs Hillary Clinton. It’s time.

The Seattle Times: The Times Recommends: Hillary Clinton, the Only for President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: Clinton has demonstrated courage, strength and resilience — the traits we especially value in a president. She does this not by tweets and talking tough but through unflagging public service through personal and political crises that would crumble an ordinary person.

WEST VIRGINIA

The Register Herald: Trump Video is the Final Straw: We Are With Her

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: She has the temperament, the ability and the experience to lead this nation.

Trump does not. At the end of the day, this is an easy call. Hillary Clinton is the candidate better positioned by a country mile to lead our country.

Bluefield Daily Telegraph: Endorsement: Hillary Clinton is Best Prepared for the Presidency

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton has the credentials, political knowledge and battle-tested competence to deal with the consequential issues the nation will confront in the next four years. She is qualified to become our 45th president.

Other recent endorsements include:

The Atlantic: Against Donald Trump

October 5, 2016

Excerpt: In its founding statement, The Atlantic promised that it would be “the organ of no party or clique,” and our interest here is not to advance the prospects of the Democratic Party, nor to damage those of the Republican Party. If Hillary Clinton were facing Mitt Romney, or John McCain, or George W. Bush, or, for that matter, any of the leading candidates Trump vanquished in the Republican primaries, we would not have contemplated making this endorsement. We believe in American democracy, in which individuals from various parties of different ideological stripes can advance their ideas and compete for the affection of voters. But Trump is not a man of ideas. He is a demagogue, a xenophobe, a sexist, a know-nothing, and a liar. He is spectacularly unfit for office, and voters—the statesmen and thinkers of the ballot box—should act in defense of American democracy and elect his opponent.

Bill Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders Campaign for Hillary

screen-shot-2016-10-08-at-6-27-38-pm

On Saturday, Bill Clinton campaigned for Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin at an event in Greenfield. Speaking at a local union hall, Bill spoke about a number of Hillary’s key platform points including her plans to raise the minimum wage, lower the cost of higher education, and build the middle class. He framed Hillary as the candidate that will help those who have been “left out and left behind.” He spoke about the importance of continuing the progress made over the last few years and said Hillary is the only candidate who will continue to the accomplishments of the current administration. A video of Bill’s speech will be posted when/if available.

Senator Bernie Sanders, meanwhile, remained on the campaign trail attending two events in Pennsylvania. Sanders’ first event was in Scranton where he spoke to a group of supporters at Scranton High School. During his speech, he said that Hillary will fight for equal pay for women, the expansion of health care, laws that ensure the “billionaire class” pays its fair share of taxes, and a reduction in the cost of higher education. Sanders also referred to Hillary’s opponent, Donald Trump, saying, “We cannot elect a president of the United States whose cornerstone of his campaign is bigotry and dividing us up. We have struggled for too many years, too many people have stood up and fought and some have died… we are not going back to those days.” A video of Sanders’ speech is below.

In Philadelphia, Sanders spoke about the same platform points during his speech, but he also underscored the importance of electing Hillary over Trump. This is especially true following the release of an audio recording that captured Trump using crude and derogatory language to describe women. Sanders went after Trump saying, “I think you’ve got a spoiled brat. I think you’ve got a person who grew up very very wealthy who thinks that he is entitled to do anything that he wants.” He said that Trump’s comments were inexcusable, and he needs “to take responsibility for his own actions.” A video from the Philadelphia rally is below.

Meanwhile, in Raleigh, North Carolina, a fundraiser was held on behalf of Hillary for America at the home of Dr. Ken and Tijuana Crosby. The event featured a conversation with the Little Rock 9: Ernest Green, Carlotta Walls LaNier, and Terrence Roberts.

100416-michelle-obma-tel-08

First Lady Michelle Obama campaigned for Hillary Clinton today in North Carolina. First, Obama spoke at the Charlotte Convention Center where she spoke about the stark differences between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. She said that while it is easy to lose enthusiasm during the long, rigorous political process, it is important to keep things in perspective. “Remember, it’s not about voting for the perfect candidate – there is no such thing. Candidates happen to be human. And this election is about making a choice between two very different candidates.” Obama then went on to speak about a number of Clinton’s key platform proposals. A video from the Charlotte event is below.

Obama then traveled to Raleigh where she spoke to a crowd of supporters at North Carolina State’s Reynolds Coliseum. She urged supporters to register to vote and to vote on November 8 to ensure that their voice is heard. “When I hear people say they aren’t feeling inspired in this election, I really have to disagree. Right now we have the opportunity to elect one of the most qualified people who has ever been president.” Obama spoke about Clinton’s long public career and her broad platform. Without mentioning him by name, Obama criticized Trump for his temperament and his questing the citizenship of her husband, President Barack Obama. A video of Obama’s speech is below.

Hillary for America will build off the excitement from the debate to talk about importance of registering to vote ahead of registration deadlines by holding local voter registration events across the country.

“Last night, families across the country tuned into the first presidential debate and witnessed just how high the stakes are in this election.

Today, Hillary for America will join thousands of organizations, businesses, local communities and celebrities in working to raise awareness about voter registration deadlines.

Hillary for America will mark National Voter Registration day by continuing its ‘3 Million Stronger’ push to register or commit to vote 3 million voters.
