HARRISON, N.Y. -- U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey gave a spirited 10-minute introduction for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton before the Democrat's campaign speech at Purchase College.
"In New York, we know that Hillary Clinton doesn’t just fight the tough battles. She wins them," said Lowey, a top congressional Democrat who represents Westchester and Rockland counties.
"From relief for NY in the aftermath of September 11, to health insurance for eight million children, to better education for all our children and jobs for economically depressed communities, Hillary got the job done as New York’s senator,'' Lowey said on Thursday afternoon.
"And that’s what she’ll do for every American as president of the United States,'' Lowey said. "It’s crystal clear she has the experience to lead on the most pressing issues affecting our families."
"On this college campus today, Hillary shares our commitment to making college more affordable and accessible. Because all Americans deserve the opportunity to pursue degrees that will help them secure a brighter future," Lowey said.
"She’ll keep guns out of the wrong hands to protect our campuses and communities,'' Lowey added.
"Hillary will stop at nothing to preserve the promise of Social Security and Medicare so that Americans age with dignity and financial security," the Harrison Democrat continued. "And she will always protect a woman’s right to choose."
