Clinton, Kaine add Cleveland to Pennsylvania, Ohio tour

Aug 01, 2016, 01:26

So, when the Democratic Party presidential ticket of Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine visits the Johnstown area on Saturday, he hopes the candidates can get an up-close look at the reality facing communities that were hit hard by the loss of manufacturing bases: unemployment, brain drains, poverty, crumbling infrastructure, crime, drugs.

While Clinton and her running mate, Tim Kaine, attempted to sell their positive economic message, much of their strategy centers on undermining Trump, particularly the business record that makes up the core of his argument to voters.

She said Americans are living in a time of "really hot politics".

Abortion, though, remains a point of difference between the pair. Kaine said he supports the Hyde Amendment, a 40-year-old rule preventing federal taxpayer dollars from funding abortions. "(Bob) Casey", John Podesta, Clinton's campaign manager, said during a meeting with the commonwealth's convention delegation earlier this week.

"I have been for the Hyde Amendment. I haven't changed that".

"Most of all, we know better to believe anyone who says, I alone can fix it", Clinton said.

Both Clinton and Kaine slammed Trump for his products that are made overseas. "I honestly don't understand why the race is so close".

Still the issue is likely to linger among some Clinton supporters.

"Repealing the Hyde amendment and providing the full range of reproductive health care to low-income women is a top priority for NARAL", Hogue said.

"While we strongly disagree with Senator Kaine on this point, there are many places where we do agree". The decision to campaign through this region right out of the Democratic convention sets up the Rust Belt to be one of the epicenters of the general election.

Shumway said history shows that voters like a candidate they can relate to and find personable - even though, he said, "I wish I knew why that mattered". "I haven't met him", Kaine said. "I've got to scratch my head about that guy every day".

Pence, the governor of IN, was with Trump at a Winston-Salem rally last Monday. "Now, we just have to keep it going". "The guy's got a weird sense of humor". "I think it has something to do with her gender and that any women would suffer that".

The convention in Philadelphia got off a to a rocky start due to protests by Bernie Sanders supporters angry at what they called bias toward Clinton's campaign by the Democratic National Committee. The protests came after the group WikiLeaks released thousands of hacked emails portraying DNC staffers in an unfavorable light. "I think we can pull together because we are stronger together". "We have ideological breadth and that's good, that's what we want to have". Clinton noted that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, who was onstage but did not speak, was wearing a shirt made in Reading, Pa. Kaine was quick to share his own awe, as well as his mother's. She told the crowd of visiting Pennsylvania from Chicago as a child and driving through Pittsburgh.

Leslie Milner, a nurse from Buckingham, Bucks County, said she overslept her alarm Friday morning after staying up late all week to watch convention speeches on television.
