Stage set for Hillary Clinton to visit St. Pete

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) – The stage is set for Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton who is appearing Monday afternoon at the Coliseum in St. Petersburg. Clinton spoke after touring 3 Daughters Brewing on 22nd Street S.

“In the first 100 days I will work with both parties to pass the biggest investment in new jobs since World War two jobs in manufacturing and clean energy technology and innovation, jobs infrastructure,” said former Secretary Clinton who quickly turned her attention to Donald Trump’s economic plan.

“It’s really outrageous to me that somebody who claims to be so successful  has done it by stiffing hard working Americans,” Clinton continued.

Supporters spent hours waiting in the rain to hear Clinton’s ideas.

“I’m a small business owners as well, So I want to see what she has to say about small businesses. What she is going to do for small business owners,” said supporter Theodore Thalassites.

“I’m going to go to college in a few weeks so I think she is going to open up news jobs and help for people with college debt to:08 a lot of students loans and that’s  a big thing for my future,” said recent high school graduate Kaitlyn Neller.

The Republican Party of Florida is taking aim at Clinton ahead of her visit. “Hillary’s visit to Florida will not change the fact that people don’t trust her to lead this nation. The more she tries to defend the indefensible, the more she sounds like the career politician we all know she is. Floridians want someone to stand up for them and fight the status quo. Unfortunately, Hillary is more of the same,” said RPOF Chairman Blaise Ingoglia

“He’s not only putting our national security at risk now he is putting economy at risk,” said Clinton about her opponent.

“Don’t let a friend vote Trump,” said Clinton who is speaking in a rally in Kissimmee later this evening.
