GROVE CITY, OH (WCMH) — Chelsea Clinton is making stops in Ohio, to campaign for her mother, Hillary, less than two weeks before Election Day.
“There’s just so much energy and I’m really excited about the next 13 days,” she said.
Clinton spoke to a crowd of over 100 people and took questions from the audience, ranging from the Dakota Access Pipeline, the economy, Medicare, and Social Security.
“Raising the cap and raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans and corporations, because we have to replenish the trust fund and then protect the trust fund for the future,” she said.
Clinton supporter Bill Purdy said as a veteran he supports Hillary and her plan not to privatize.
“I think Hillary has talked about doing the things that probably are the most progressive for the needs of seniors now and ones that will be coming,” he said.
Herb Brown said he came to the event because he wanted to tell Chelsea that he supports her mom.
“This country is called the United States. The United States. The United States means united. Trump is trying to divide everything that we stand for,” he said.
There was one protester at the event who said he’s voting for Donald Trump.
“I think she and her husband are two of the most devious, dishonest and in his case criminal people that have ever been in American politics,” said Trump supporter Roger Watson.
We asked Chelsea Clinton one-on-one about the thousands of her mother’s emails released by WikiLeaks and how voters can trust her.
“It’s really a question about character, and what someone has stood for and fought for their whole lives is really revealing about their character,” Clinton said. “So I hope that people would look at my mom’s record stretching back from before I was born, fighting for women, children and families and realize that is someone who deserves their trust.”
Chelsea Clinton said she thinks this election is the most important in her lifetime.
“Whether I’m thinking about paid medical and family leave or early childhood education or college affordability, so I hope people will realize how much is at stake and come out to vote,” she said.
Early voting in Ohio expands this week, with the addition of Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
You can still request an absentee ballot until November 5, but it must be completed and postmarked by November 7.
