New York, June 14: United States Democratic Party front-runner Hillary Clinton, who addressed her first major political rally here at Roosevelt Island in her bid to be president in 2016, on Saturday vowed to help “everyday Americans”.
Outlining her key policies in a speech to thousands of supporters, Hillary Clinton pledged to support working families, saying: “America can’t succeed unless you succeed.”
She promised to make the economy work for everyday Americans, not just those at the top if elected president next year.
Hillary said prosperity can’t be just for CEOs and hedge fund managers; democracy can’t be just for billionaires and corporations.
According to BBC report, Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and daughter Chelsea were also present.
Until now, the former secretary of state has held small events with selected audiences in early voting states such as Iowa, and Saturday’s outdoor rally marked a change in gear for her campaign.
Her rally, however, did not see her detailing any specific policy proposals, but her campaign aides said it could be revealed in the weeks to come.
Hillary Clinton is hoping to create history by becoming the first female US president.
