Hillary Clinton was in Central Falls Saturday to campaign in advance of Tuesday’s primary election.
Rhode Island’s Democractic leadership turned out in force to welcome Clinton, including the state’s congressional delegation and Gov. Gina Raimondo.
Then Clinton took the stage before a crowd of about a thousand supporters:“I love this little state," she said. "I have so many friends here. I know how resilient and hard working the people in this state are.”
The former secretary of state began her speech with promises for better economic times, much like the ones, she said, her husband presided over in the 1990s. She promised to bring equal pay to women and boost the minimum wage. And she said she would support the creation of more high paying union jobs, all of which were big applause lines.
Before wrapping up, Clinton made sure to ask supporters to vote in Tuesday’s primary, which could be a close contest with her democratic rival Bernie Sanders.
