Presidential Candidate Clinton comes to Minneaplis
Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton spoke to a crowd of nearly 4,000 people at Augsburg College in Minneapolis on Sunday, reports the Star Tribune.
Clinton talked for over 30 minutes on topics ranging from affordable health care to protecting the environment. The stop was one of many across the nation for Clinton in a last ditch effort to gain some votes before the primaries on Tuesday. Minnesota is one of 24 states that will be holding primaries on Tuesday. Clinton's visit comes on the heals of democrat party rival Barack Obama speaking in front of nearly 20,000 at the Target Center Saturday.
According to the Pioneer Press, Clinton was slightly ahead of Obama in a statewide poll the final week before the primaries.
That was taken before candidate John Edwards dropped out of the race though. A deciding factor may be who the Edwards supporters not choose to vote for. Former Edwards supporter Will Labovitch, 28, of South St. Paul, attended both the Clinton and Obama and events and is leaning towards Clinton.
"The trouble is it felt like a church revival, not a political campaign rally," Labovitch said of the Obama event. "I think I might give Hillary a shot." (Pioneer Press)
