Hillary Clinton campaigns in Cleveland

A campaign rally was held at Cuyahoga Community College's Recreation Center

Hillary Clinton spoke to voters at Cuyahoga Community College on Tuesday.

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Her goal to help “struggling and striving” Americans was the point presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wanted to get across during a campaign rally in Cleveland on Tuesday.

Clinton spoke before a crowd at Cuyahoga Community College’s Recreation Center. She talked about paid family leave, equal pay for women and a debt-free college experience, as well as knocking down economic barriers, during her approximate half-hour speech.

“It’s the only way for America to live up to its full potential, if every American is given a chance to live up to his or hers,” she said.

Clinton also praised her opponent, Bernie Sanders, saying the differences between she and Sanders “pale in comparison to what’s going on on the Republican side.”

“Running for president shouldn’t be about delivering insults, it should be about delivering results for the American people,” she said.

She also talked about her vote to bailout the auto industry and said she would stand up to corporations that outsource their work overseas, mentioning Eaton Corp. in Ohio. The company, she said, closed its Berea plant to move work overseas while getting tax credits.

Speaking prior to Clinton’s speech was Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, D-Warrensville Heights, and Rep. Tim Ryan, D-13th.

Ryan said Clinton’s campaign is all about helping ordinary people.

“Every single day, ordinary people do extraordinary things… This campaign and this candidate is about this candidate helping ordinary people like us do extraordinary things,” he said.

On Wednesday, former president Bill Clinton will also be in Ohio to campaign for Hillary in Columbus and Dayton. He will speak at a Columbus organizing event at 12:45 p.m. at the Hillary for Ohio Office, located at 225 E. Broad St. in Columbus.
