‘A very special election’: Obama says ‘a very special year’ for Clinton
The Obama campaign says it’s planning a big push to make Hillary Clinton the Democratic nominee in November.
“This election is a very special one, and the stakes are high,” the campaign said in a statement.
“The campaign will be holding a number of events this week in key states including Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, in preparation for what we expect to be a very strong, spirited campaign.”
Clinton’s campaign said that if she wins the White House, “the first priority for the next president will be to make sure that we secure America’s borders and prevent any other country from entering the United States, which will include a massive crackdown on the illegal immigration that threatens our national security and American families.”
The Democratic Party has been gearing up for the general election since June when it elected President Obama.
On Monday, Biden made his final bid for the White Senate and will announce his campaign at a campaign stop in Pittsburgh.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
