With another opportunity to add to her current lead as the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton warmed the hearts of an electrified, filled to capacity crowd at the World Cafe Live at the Queen.  Secretary Clinton outlined her plans to support small businesses especially focusing on intentional investment for those by women and youth. The crowd filled with members of the Laborers’ International Union of North America appreciated her interest in articulating the need for creating additional apprenticeships for laborers.  She also highlighted her history of advancing healthcare for children, affectionately referring to it as “Hillary-care.”  Praising President Obama’s progress over the past eight years, Secretary Clinton also emphasized how pay equality and education impact the entire family.

 

Clinton acknowledged the tragedy that occurred last week at Howard Vo-Tech but also stressed the importance of investing in early childhood education, conflict resolution in schools, helping prepare more youth to be college-ready, and aiding them in paying down student debt.

Secretary Clinton promised once in office to expand the Affordable Care Act to include mental health coverage and treatment for those impacted by substance abuse (specifically opiate abuse). She also stressed the importance of defending marriage equality and expanding social security. She then detailed her experience with the Children’s Defense Fund and her time as the Secretary of Defense. She shared passionately about her desire to include a comprehensive immigration plan that would keep families together by creating a path to citizenship.

With Clinton trying to clinch her bid for the Democratic nomination, and Bernie Sanders trying to make a comeback from last week’s loss in New York, all eyes will be on Delaware tomorrow.
