On Monday, May 2, and Tuesday, May 3, Hillary Clinton will launch her “Breaking Down Barriers” tour with stops in Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio. In her remarks in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, Clinton said, “I want you to keep imagining a tomorrow where instead of building walls, we are breaking down barriers. We are making it more likely that Americans will be part of a prosperous, inclusive, decent society.”
On this tour, Clinton will meet with voters, hear their stories, and discuss how she will fight to raise incomes and expand opportunities for them and their families as president. The trip will underscore Clinton’s focus on the aspirations and needs of families, especially in often overlooked or underserved communities across the country, and what they are looking for in their next president.
On Monday, Clinton will make stops in Ashland, Kentucky, and Williamson, West Virginia. On Tuesday, Clinton will stop in West Virginia and deliver remarks on jobs and the economy in Ohio.
Additional details about this tour will be released later.
West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin also recently announced he would endorse Hillary Clinton for president.
Tomblin noted, “Although I remain concerned about some of Secretary Clinton’s positions on fossil fuels, I believe she is the best choice to unite the Democratic Party and, after being elected president in November, our country. I have had discussions with former President Bill Clinton and representatives from Secretary Clinton’s campaign and believe Hillary Clinton is committed to working with us to diversify West Virginia’s economy while continuing to find ways to use our abundant coal and natural gas to power the nation.”
