President Bill Clinton will be in Evanston on Tuesday to campaign for his wife as Illinoisans gear up for the March 15 primary election.
Clinton will be talking to voters at the Beth Emet The Free Synagogue, located at 1224 Dempster St. He plans to “lay out what’s at stake during this election and why Hillary Clinton is the only candidate who can break down barriers that hold Illinoisans back, deliver results, and continue the progress that we’ve made under President Obama” and encourage voters to hit the polls early. The event is open to the public and doors open at 9:30 a.m.
The Clinton camp also began running TV ads over the weekend. The Breaking Barriers ad, which is voiced by actor Morgan Freeman, “highlights Hillary Clinton’s lifetime commitment to breaking barriers and how she is the only candidate capable of delivering results for families, especially in underserved communities.”
Here’s a look:
The second ad features Clinton making a pledge to end corporate tax inversions. Take a look:
Clinton also released a new radio ad in Michigan today ahead of the state’s Tuesday primary. The ad features audio from Sunday night’s Democratic debate when Clinton and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) sparred over their votes to save the auto industry. Clinton voted in favor of legislation that provided billions of dollars to investment banks to keep them from failing, which was also tied to saving the auto industry. Sanders, who is in favor of breaking up big banks, voted against the $700 billion package, arguing that “if an institution is too big to fail, it is too big to exist.”
