Hillary Clinton Campaigning In Rochester

Hillary Clinton Campaigning In Rochester


By Wendy Mills

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Rochester is falling into the political spot light as most presidential candidates are campaigning in Rochester before the state’s primary. Friday, is Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s turn.

The former secretary of state will take the stage at Monroe Community College.

Three presidential candidates in three days, Clinton, Kasich and Trump. Ted Cruz will be in Rochester next week and its uncertain whether Sanders will be in Rochester at all.

All of these campaign stops make Rochester a big part of this final run before the New York State primary.

Hillary Clinton will be at MCC Friday night. It’s open to public, but you’re asked to register to attend at the Clinton campaign website. The event is at 6 p.m. and doors open at 4 p.m. She’s expected to speak for about an hour.

If her husband’s visit to Rochester earlier this week was any indication of turnout, you can expect a long line to get in.

So far across the state, she has been speaking like a hometown candidate, talking about her efforts on behalf of New Yorker’s as a senator for eight years. We expect that she will talk about her efforts to expand health coverage for millions of children and standing up for womens rights. We also expect Clinton to criticize and challenge comments made by her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders.

While winning the state will not significantly affect her delegate lead, it will likely spark some questions about just how strong this candidacy is and her appeal among liberals and younger voters.

She has said that ‘New Yorkers took a chance on me, and I will never forget that.” She is obviously hoping New Yorkers do once again.

MCC campus will be a much busier place later, between media set-up, security and spectators. And after her appearance at MCC Hillary Clinton has another Rochester campaign stop this evening.

The New York State United Teachers Association is holding it’s 44th Annual NYSUT Representative Assembly at the Rochester Riverside convention Center. They confirmed that Mrs. Clinton will speak at their general session Friday. That’s expected to take place sometime after 7:30 p.m.

Time Warner Cable News will continue to bring you further updates on Hillary’s arrival.
