Hillary foists loyalty vow on voters
Individuals trying to attend one of Hillary Clinton’s recent campaign events in Cleveland, Ohio, were forced by staffers to sign a pledge promising to vote for the former secretary of state as a condition of entry.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review posted a picture of the paper pledge on Twitter. And the newspaper’s reporter, Zalena Zito, tweeted this message beneath the photo: “Hillary Has Millennials sign commitment pledge in order to attend #cleveland event.”
The event was for the millennial-age crowd.
Zito, in her coverage of the campaign stop, mentioned Clinton’s struggle to win this demographic of voter from Sen. Bernie Sanders, who’s been rising in the presidential polls these past weeks.
She wrote, Real Clear Politics reported: “What looked like a block-long line turned out to be a crowd that could barely fill one-fourth of a football field. And the students in attendance? Well, they weren’t exactly there to support the former secretary of State [but rather Sanders]. … Such sentiment wasn’t anecdotal; scores of students expressed it.”
