Hillary Clinton holds voter registration rally in Columbus


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) –  On the eve of the voter registration deadline Hillary Clinton held an event in Columbus.

According to the United States Secret Service, an estimated 18,500 people attended the Democratic nominee’s event on Ohio State University’s campus, where she urged the crowd to get themselves, friends and family registered to vote before Ohio’s registration deadline which is October 11.

During her speaking event, it didn’t take long for her to talk about Sunday night’s second presidential debate which many are calling disgraceful.

“I’ll tell you what,” Clinton said, ” I’m not sure you’ll ever see anything like that again. At least I hope you won’t.”

According to Clinton supporter and Ohio State University student Rachel Seaman, Clinton came out on top in the debate.

“I think it was like watching someone who was very prepared to be president versus a third grader saying, I know you are but what am I? I don’t think it was a competition at all,” Seaman said.

Clinton also mentioned how she would like to improve the country’s economy. She told the crowd that she’d like to impose an “exit tax” for companies wanting to leave America to do business in other countries as well as promising that she will not increase taxes on the middle class.

Early voting in Ohio begins October 12.
