Presidential hopeful and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed supporters at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) Sunday.
Clinton addressed hundreds at UAPB about what she says are ways to break barriers.
“Economic barriers, barriers of health care, education, inequality before the law, discrimination, any barrier that stands in the way from us moving our country and our people forward must be dismantled,” Clinton said.
Supporters were adamant about Clinton’s presence in Arkansas
Clinton put special emphasis on the youth vote. Young voters like UAPB student Alexander Watkins said young voters are staying engaged. “I feel like Hillary has Arkansas. Based off the history she has here, based off of her resume, documentation, light of activism for the state, for minority groups, for disfranchised people. Bernie Sanders has a great message but Hillary Clinton has been around for the long hall,” Watkins said.
Clinton acknowledged the importance of Super Tuesday in Arkansas.
“When you vote on Tuesday in the primary, you area voting not only for a president, you are voting for a commander and chief. You are voting for someone with the experience, the temperament to be able to keep our country safe,” Clinton said.
Supporters like Classy Green said Clinton’s experience is what intrigues them the most.
“She has represented us all around the world. She is prepared for this job to be Madame President. I know that without a doubt,” Green said.
