DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Chelsea Clinton spoke about her mom’s record in the both in the U.S. Senate and as Secretary of State, hitting on her work with the Children’s Defense Fund. Instead of a podium with talking points, she left it up to the audience to lead the conversation.
Chelsea Clinton greeted supporters Thursday–taking pictures and shaking hands after wrapping up her Q & A with audience members. They questioned her on her mom’s plans for tackling the nation’s biggest issues.
“As proud as I am and as grateful as I am that my mom is running,” Clinton said. “This election is about my children.”
Making higher education affordable to all–it’s something Clinton wants for her children in the future and all children in U.S.
“She believes that anyone should be able to go Sinclair,” Clinton said. “Or any community college tuition free regardless of family income.”
For Anita Andrews, looking after families is something she thinks Clinton is best suited doing.
“It’s very very important to get out and support someone,” Clinton said. “Who is actually really focusing on improving the quality of life for the families.”
As Clinton spread her message inside, protesters outside had their own message. Rev. Katherine Marple–was one of about a dozen other anti-abortion advocates who gathered outside Sinclair Thursday, hoping to get the attention of anyone passing by.
“We’re trying to create awareness of the difference between to the 2 candidates,” Clinton said. “Not necessarily that we support one or the other, but that we support life from conception to natural death.”
Back inside, Anita Andrews says she wants a candidate with a clear focus. She says Hillary Clinton has that.
Jordan: “What the most important issue to you in this election cycle?”
Anita: “The economy. Creating more jobs. Keeping the jobs here in the U.S. Raising the minimum wage.”
