“I can’t do any of this for you. I can’t work for you, fight for you, stick up for you, stand up for you, unless you support me in this election here in California” said Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

Clinton held a rally in El Centro Thursday. The former Secretary of State was at the Barcelona Event Center, with hundreds of people in attendance trying to win over the El Centro voters.

In her speech, Clinton spoke about a variety of topics including immigration, the importance of small businesses, and equal pay for women.

Clinton said, “Everything that I possibly can to make sure that we get it right this time. And we provide the kind of support that immigrants deserve to have.”

This is Clinton’s first time in El Centro.

Clinton also spoke about Republican nominee Donald Trump and how she is excited to debate him in the upcoming months, but she did not once mention her opponent Bernie Sanders.

Clinton adds, “I want your support so that I can come out of California strong so that when I go toe to toe with Donald Trump…which I’m looking forward to doing.”

She talks about Trump’s vision of a “fearful America” that she says he would be less secure and less engaged in the world.

“We have a lot of work to do but I’m excited about this work. And we have to do everything we can to protect our country to make sure we’re safe and strong and we’re leading the world with our values and we have to unify our country” said Clinton.

EL CENTRO, Calif. – Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton held a rally in El Centro Thursday. The former Secretary of State was at the Barcelona Event Center, with hundreds of people in attendance. Congressman Juan Vargas (D – CA 51) and his daughter introduced Clinton to the audience.

In her El Centro speech, Clinton spoke about a variety of topics including immigration, the importance of small businesses, and equal pay for women. This is Clinton’s first time in El Centro.

Clinton also spoke about Republican nominee Donald Trump and how she is excited to debate him in the upcoming months, but she did not mention her opponent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at all.

Clinton was in San Diego Thursday morning and delivered a speech where she said Donald Trump is “temperamentally unfit” to be president and argues the presumptive Republican nominee is peddling foreign policy proposals that are “dangerously incoherent.”

She seeks to undermine the billionaire businessman’s qualifications by casting him as someone who “doesn’t understand America or the world.”

The former secretary of state and likely Democratic nominee says she is offering a “smart and principled” foreign policy that centers on keeping America in a leading role around the globe.

She contrasts that with Trump’s vision of a “fearful America” that she says would be less secure and less engaged in the world.

She currently has an edge over her competitor Sen. Bernie Sanders. Clinton holds 2,312 delegates of the 2,383 delegates needed to clench the Democratic nomination for president. Sanders is behind with only 1,545. California is an essential win for Sanders to have a statistical chance of getting the nomination, the Golden State holds 548 delegates. Clinton is in Southern California ahead of the California Primary Elections on Tuesday, June 7.

Clinton’s next stop Thursday is for a private dinner in Perris, Calif.
