Honoring Ohio workers with Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine
Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine visited Cleveland on Monday, to celebrate the resilience of Ohio workers and talk about their plans to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. They were joined by Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, three great union leaders—AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, AFT President Randi Weingarten, and AFSCME President Lee Saunders— along with hundreds of union members, out to show their support for Hillary.
Here are some highlights from the day:
“Nobody gets through life alone. Unions helped build the largest middle-class in the history of the world, in our country. They fought for fair wages, safe working conditions, they’ve helped so many people get on that rung to the middle class, and their kids go even higher.” —Hillary
“Here’s what I believe. The American dream is big enough for all of us. If we build it, we will expand it and create more opportunities. And as we run this campaign on issues, our most important goal is getting the economy to work for everybody.” —Hillary
“But we have a lot of work to do. That’s why we have to work as hard as we can between now and when the last votes are counted, and that’s why I need your help. I want to get the economy working for everybody, not just those at the top. I want to be sure that we lead the world with strength and steadiness and that we protect America here at home and around the world. And I want to unify our country.
“I believe with all my heart — that every American must vote.” —Hillary
We’ve come a long way as a nation — but it’s going to take all of us working together to make sure the forward progress continues. Join us by signing up to help register voters in you neighborhood before the October 11 deadline.
