Hillary Clinton tells Florida voters to ‘reaffirm their values’ at polls

At a voter registration rally in Coral Springs, Florida, Hillary Clinton urged Americans to register to vote and go to the polls in November to reaffirm the values that make our country great. Hillary Clinton is dedicated to an America where we are all “Stronger Together” and where our economy works for all, not just those at the top. But Donald Trump has called America a nation in decline, has a history of disparaging comments about women and has disparaged anyone who has questioned him, Clinton said, adding, “My opponent believes America is in decline. I’ve never heard such a dark and divisive, terrible image of our country coming from someone running to be president of the United States. When he talks, I lots of times don’t even recognize the country he’s talking about. And why are we already great? Well, it is not just because of the size of our economy or the size of our military. It is because of our generosity; it is because of our ingenuity; it is because of the diversity of our country.”

Clinton’s remarks, as transcribed, are below:

“Thank you! Whoa! Thank you so much. And I am so happy to be here in Coral Springs, in Broward County, in the great state of Florida! And I know there’s a big overflow crowd in the next building over. I think they can see and hear us, but I wanted to thank them for being part of today’s event.
And I’ve got to recognize Joshua Simmons, who just introduced me. He is a civics teacher at Pompano Beach Middle School, and boy, are his students lucky to have him and his enthusiasm. And I want to also commend him for talking about his mother and how hard she worked, and his sister who he helped to raise. We really are stronger together, and that starts in families and neighborhoods and communities.

Well, you heard from a lot of my friends who represent you, starting with my great friend and former colleague, your Senator Bill Nelson. And I am looking forward to working with Bill as we make sure to continue the progress that will move us all forward together. And I sure hope Florida sends some reinforcements to the Senate and elect Congressman Patrick Murphy. I think Florida deserves a full-time senator, don’t you? And I want to thank my friend, someone who has just worked her heart out not just for her constituents but for Democrats across America – Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. And another great friend of mine going back more years than we care to remember – I’m so pleased he’s here with us – Congressman Alcee Hastings. And I know that Congressman Ted Deutch, who represents this district – is over in Israel for the funeral of a great, great man, Shimon Peres, and I want to thank Ted for all of his support and his hard work.
