At her unveiling or whatever they're calling her event?

By election time, it will either be dead or enacted.
And, if she did say she was against it, it wouldn't change one mind of an avid Sanders supporter.
If you wouldn't vote for her in the general election because of her stance, and instead voted green etc or stayed home, then
well... that's on you.

Additionally she has stated her position. Unlike Sanders and members of congress she has not seen the actual bill.
Her last work with it was 5 years ago in a draft stage.

On edit:

I imagine she wouldn't have done that if she disagreed with how this was written (by the corporations)...it may have changed some but more than likely she understood what was happening.
