Hillary Clinton Wants You to Remember How New York She Is Ahead of State's Primary

"Hillary Clinton returned to the Harlem neighborhood of New York City on Wednesday to campaign ahead of the state's April 19 presidential primary, delivering a speech that heavily referenced the 2001 terror attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center.

The former secretary of state, who had previously served as a US senator from New York, and her rival Bernie Sanders, who was born and schooled in Brooklyn, the city's largest borough, both have strong ties to the community. But with three weeks to go until New York voters head to the polls, forecasts show Clinton pulling ahead of Sanders by as much as 48 points.

Clinton appears intent on leveraging her eight-year stint in the Senate on behalf of New York, which covered the pivotal 9/11 era, to sustain if not build on her lead in the days ahead.

In her remarks on Wednesday in front of a crowd of several hundred at Harlem's iconic Apollo Theater, Clinton highlighted her efforts to rebuild the city in the aftermath of the attacks and to pass a healthcare bill for 9/11 first responders, some of whom later developed post-traumatic stress disorder, respiratory illnesses, and cancer linked to breathing toxic dust and debris at ground zero.

"Those eight eventful years I served you, there were some hard times, weren't there?" Clinton said, drawing murmurs of affirmation from the crowd. "But we pulled together. None of us who lived through 9/11 and its aftermath will ever forget the lives lost.""

Will she use a Brooklyn accent at the debates?

22. In this area it is going very well.

 

My friends say Bernie is winning the northwest part of Brooklyn but the rest looks good for Clinton.

Anything east and south of Prospect Park looks strong for Hillary. The real fight will be Manhattan and The Bronx.

Queens and Staten Island is more likely to be for Hillary.

2. Whatever you do, do NOT take a drink every time she says "9/11" in the debate!!

 

We don't need to be losing anyone to alcohol poisoning.

Didn't see her there.

She should shut up about it.

3. Born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, lived in Arkansas and D.C. most of the rest of her life,

established residency in NY only to run for the US Senate, so she could run for POTUS.

She couldn't be more NY! 911! First woman President! Excelsior!

29. If there was an opening in South Dakota instead of NY

 

she'd probably move there, and take it.

28. My one and only question is this: Will she do better than the 5,500 people which was the maximum

 

Clinton got in her NYC kickoff event last June.

She hasn't gotten anything bigger than that. Bernie, however, gets that, and probablywill get another 10-15k more in EACH location in NYC.
