Your Future is On the line
On November 8, Americans will vote to decide who will be the next president of the United States. This will be one of the most important elections in our nation’s history. I say, “Don’t be conned by a con man.” For our children, our grandchildren, and our nation’s future, vote Hillary Clinton for President!
Vote Nov 8
The Choice is Clear
This year’s vote is not just about candidates. It’s about whether to increase the security and power of the real muscle, brains and bones of America - her workers - or to turn the clock back.
A Trump victory would mean doubling down on giving business the means to line their pockets and the false promise that this will result in more and better jobs. A Clinton win will be a victory for the middle class.
