Hillary Clinton Campaigns in Elko, NV

ELKO, Nevada (ABC4 Utah) – With the Nevada caucus this weekend, Elko, Nevada is a hotbed on the campaign trail.  Monday, Hillary Clinton spoke to supporters at Adobe Middle School.
Clinton’s democratic rival, Bernie Sanders headed back to South Carolina.  Experts say he’s facing a big challenge in the southern state because of the large black population and the long-time Clinton-family supporters.
Presidential candidate and Former Secretary of State Clinton took a hit in New Hampshire.  She plans to fight back in Nevada and South Carolina.
“The stakes in this election are pretty high,” said Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton.
This campaign stop in elko started with talk of the economy and the impact the recession had here locally.
“We were losing 800,000 jobs a month. We ended up losing nine million jobs, five million homes lost and Nevada was really hard hit wasn’t it?” said Clinton.
She didn’t waste any time bashing her Republican counterparts, but she didn’t do it alone.
“I know we have a lot of threats to our country right now. ISIS being one of them. A big, blonde haired business man being another one,” said a crowd member.
Clinton only took a few jabs at her competitor Bernie Sanders.
“I’m not a single issue candidate,” said Clinton.
She specifically patted President Obama on the back and turning her back to Sanders on his proposed healthcare plan.
“I think the last thing our country needs right now is to be plunged into another contentious debate about healthcare.  It will gridlock us.  It will stop everything else from happening and the likelihood of it every being successful in the congress is pretty darn low,” said Clinton.
Her supporters urged everyone to volunteer, canvass, and work for the Clinton campaign during this final push before Saturday’s caucus.
