Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 11:45 rally in the Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island in NY, was looking packed at 9 AM as eager attendees lined up in what seemed to be an endless snake leading up to the park.
There was a ton of excitement in the air as a largely youthful crowd shared their enthusiasm for the event to come. This reporter overheard passersby exclaiming, “There’s Hillary!!” But, in fact, the Democratic 2016 candidate was nowhere in sight yet.
The rally is open to the public and thousands are expected to attend. Clinton is expected to outline her plan to fight for the middle-class.
After the rally, Clinton will head to Iowa for a series of events, and then head to New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina next week.
