As Hillary Clinton has said, she will fight for every vote and compete in every state, and we were thrilled to split the states on Tuesday, with a win in Kentucky and a loss in Oregon. While we would have loved to win both states, we picked up delegates to add to her insurmountable lead in pledged delegates and popular vote, and there is still no doubt that Hillary Clinton will be the first woman in American history to earn the presidential nomination of a major party.
Meanwhile, with Donald Trump, it's another week with another deluge of alarming comments.
John Podesta said it best yesterday:
In this week alone, Donald Trump has jeopardized relations with a close ally before setting foot overseas; talked about building a relationship with a reckless dictator; called two diverse American cities more dangerous than war zones like Iraq; and released a list of suggested Supreme Court nominees that includes no people of color, but does include a judge who upheld a law requiring doctors to use scare tactics to impede reproductive rights and another judge who equated homosexual sex to ’bestiality,’ ’pedophilia’ and ’necrophilia.’ And it’s only Wednesday. At this point, it’s hard to keep up with the myriad reasons Trump should not be president, but the divisive policies and nominees, reckless and uninformed foreign policy positions and offensive views of Americans are just a few. Any one of these things would be troubling. All of them together, in just a few days, is further proof that Donald Trump is a risk we can’t afford.In contrast to Trump's activity this week, Hillary Clinton is spending every day of this campaign meeting with voters who seek real solutions that will work to break down the barriers they face in life.Volunteers from all 50 states are making calls and having conversations with people in their communities to help get Hillary Clinton elected -- and we want you to join us!
