Hillary Clinton is back in Ohio today for another rally in the important battleground state. This time, she brought along Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who finally endorsed Clinton for president on June 9 once it became clear that Clinton is going to be the Democratic candidate in November. It is Warren’s first public appearance with Clinton since her endorsement.
The rally kicked off at 10:30 a.m. at the Cincinnati Museum Center in Cincinnati. This is the third appearance for Clinton in Ohio in the past two weeks. Meanwhile, Donald Trump only just hired his first campaign staffer in the state.
In her speech before Clinton’s, Warren showed how important she can be for Clinton’s campaign as she continued to be one of Trump’s harshest critics. She called Trump “a small, insecure money-grubber who fights for no one but himself.”
Warren also pointed out that both she and Clinton have humble roots compared to Trump. “I’m a daughter of a maintenance man who made it all the way to the United States Senate, and Hillary Clinton is the granddaughter of a factory worker who’s going to make it all the way to the White House,” she said.
Warren and Clinton haven’t always been on the same page, especially when it comes to Wall Street, but she told Rachel Maddow that she was ready to work to make sure Clinton wins the Oval Office.
I’m ready. I am ready to get in this fight and work my heart out for Hillary Clinton to become the next president of the United States — and to make sure that Donald Trump never gets anyplace close to the White House.
This event comes after President Barack Obama endorsed Clinton and after Bernie Sanders said he would vote for Clinton. Obama was supposed to make his first appearance on the campaign trail with Clinton earlier this month, but it was postponed after the Orlando mass shooting.
