Hillary Clinton Comes to Campaign in Chicago

Hillary Clinton Comes to Campaign in Chicago

She hopes her support in the minority community can fuel a comeback. Reed-Veal was among a row of grieving mothers who stood behind Clinton as she vowed to address police brutality and crime. He has stepped up his outreach by securing the endorsements of young activists including Martese Johnson, a University of Virginia student who was brutally beaten by campus police past year, and Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner, a NY man who died while a police officer had him in a chokehold. A medical examiner ruled Bland's death a suicide.

"We owe it to them to reform police practices, to ensure that no other young woman like Sandra Bland is ever pulled out of the vehicle for no reason and put into a jail where she is found dead". "We owe it to the families of Laquan McDonald, Walter Scott and Tamir Rice, and to many other young men who have been killed by police".

The appearance with Reed-Veal in Chicago came the day after she delivered a major address in NY on combating issues related to racial injustice in the country, and as she seeks to boost her sizable advantage over Sanders for the black vote.

"You know you hear the talk, but to have Hillary step out and say, "No, We are going to tackle this" is a marvelous thing", Reed-Veal said later. "(Clinton knows) you have to stand and push through".

Hillary Clinton stressed her ties to President Barack Obama during a stop in his hometown of Chicago Wednesday, praising his accomplishments in office as "Impressive" and pledging to carry on many of his policies if she becomes President.

Junior forward Nigel Hayes, the Badgers' leading scorer at 17.1 points per game, was limited to five points on 1-for-13 shooting. They have lost two straight for the first time this season, including a sloppy home loss to Wisconsin earlier in the week.


There are still concerns whether Clinton can win over young voters, particularly young Blacks who have lost trust in the political establishment.

Missing from the stage, and from Clinton's remarks, was Mayor Rahm Emanuel who has been struggling to regain support from the black community.

Bill Clinton will be speaking at a fundraiser reception at 6 p.m., to be hosted by Sonic CEO Cliff Hudson and his wife, Leslie, the Hillary Clinton campaign announced.

Clinton also criticized Bernie Sanders for calling President Obama weak and disappointing.

"The fact he is not here today I don't think that's anything other than he's so focused on Chicago issues", Davis said. Chicago Police Department reported 468 homicides last year, more than any city in the United States of America and has already recorded at least 85 homicides so far this year. Sandra Bland's mother, Geneva Reed-Veal, is expected to join Clinton at a rally in the city's Bronzeville neighborhood on Wednesday. "They must motivate every one of us to take on these issues, reforming police practices and making it as hard as possible for people to get guns who shouldn't have them in the first place".
