Hillary Clinton Addresses the Greater Seattle Area Before WA Dem. Caucus

Before Clinton's arrival on stage, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray spoke highly of the Presidential hopeful. Before turning the stage over, he made his endorsement for Hillary. Upon Clinton's arrival on stage, the five hundred plus crowd roared in cheers. Those who could not be inside due to the High School's limited capacity, could hear the event through speakers outside.

After the event, I spoke with a few attendees to get an idea of what they took away from the evening. Generally, it was a positive reception from their point of view. I pointed out that there was a lack of information toward police accountability and decriminalization of marijuana on the Federal level; both very hot issues right now with younger people. The consensus seemed to be that Hillary only had so much time available to speak, and unable to address everything that are on voters minds. One could not help but feel there was certainly much more that needed to be talked about. Voters will certainly make their voice heard this Saturday (3/26/2016) at the Democratic Caucus polls.
