Crowds piled into the Charlotte Convention Center this afternoon to see Kay Hagan and welcome Hillary Clinton.  According to CNN’s Dan Merica it took Hillary under two minutes to mention her little granddaughter named Charlotte who will turn one month old tomorrow on Hillary’s birthday.

Hillary and Kay Hagan spoke for a little more than a half hour during which a heckler briefly interrupted shouting about immigration. Hillary told the audience that Senator Hagan has a comprehensive plan for better jobs, better wages, and better schools.  She said the fact that women in NC still get paid less than men for the same work costs those families thousands of dollars and that women’s rights are like the canaries in the coal mine.  If they are not protected everyone is at risk.

On her swing through New England today, Hillary would be speaking at one event while crowds lined up and piled up to see her at her next stop.  That was dramatically evident via the tweets from Scarborough High School in Maine today as the attendees gathered to see her at a rally in support of gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud.

The Super-Supporter will be in North Carolina tomorrow to boost Kay Hagan.

Hillary continued today’s trek through New England by appearing at a rally for gubernatorial candidate Gina Raimondo.  Rhode Island College in Providence hosted the event that clearly focused on rebuilding the middle class.

The Park Plaza Hotel in Boston hosted a rally for Martha Coakley’s gubernatorial race today, and Hillary was there to speak up for Martha’s dedication to families and the issues facing them. The rally was preceded by a fundraiser, and most of these pictures were tweeted.  The first few were from the fund raiser.

After whipping up support for Andrew Cuomo in New York this morning, Hillary went to Minnesota for a “get out the vote” rally for Mark Dayton and Al Franken.  Amy Klobuchar joined them onstage at Macalester College in St. Paul.

Reality check here for everybody.  These campaign events and Hillary’s tireless campaigning (she makes a swing through New England tomorrow) are not about “stacking Congress” for her in case she decides to run in 2016.  This election right now has everything to do with a whole hideous agenda out there if these candidates are not elected.  It is crucial.

We can forget about immigration reform and raising the minimum wage if they lose.  We will also see cuts to important social safety nets at both state and federal levels if the Democratic Party loses the Senate and these state houses.  It is valuable to remember the lessons of the 2010 mid-terms right about now.

This election is not about Hillary. Perhaps she is one who best understands that.   It is about you: your family, your children, your parents, and you.  It is about threatened cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.  It is about Tea Party candidates who want to privatize Social Security.  (How’s your 401K or 403B doing?)  It is about reducing benefits that we already have.

The reason Bill and Hillary Clinton are criss-crossing the country is because there are immediate threats to social programs that American families depend on right now.  Bill Clinton has said that when we vote we win.  We need to win just to maintain the status quo.

No one can afford to take anything for granted.  Hillary said that today in New York.  We all need to vote.  We cannot afford to lose. When we lose, if we lose, amazing changes can happen overnight, and they will not be good.  Congress may have acted like it was operating in a tar pit since 2009, but if the Republicans win the Senate, a surge of electrical energy like a bolt of lightning will galvanize them.  That will also happen in states where Republicans win the state house from Democrats.

So everyone needs to vote,  not because Hillary has asked us to or needs us to,  but because Hillary knows what will happen if we do not and is trying to tell us.  It will not be pretty.

Every vote counts, always and every time. If you are too young to remember the 2000 election, please take my word for it (or, if you don’t trust me, look it up or watch HBO’s Recount).

Hillary Clinton has made it clear, she is back in New York bigtime!  She campaigned for the Cuomo-Hochul ticket at a Women’s Equality Party event this morning.  On Monday, she will support a local candidate, Sean Patrick Maloney, who is a former Clinton White House aide.  Maloney is running against anti-women’s agenda candidate Nan Hayworth.   The rally will have a women’s rights theme.

Hillary Clinton will campaign for Maloney

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will lend her star power to Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney’s re-election campaign by appearing at a “Women for Maloney” rally on Monday in Somers, a northern Westchester County town about 20 minutes north of Hillary and Bill Clinton’s home in Chappaqua.

Maloney’s campaign announced this morning that the event will be free and open to any members of the public who grab tickets, distributed at five campaign offices on a first-come basis. The rally will take place at the Pinnacle at Heritage Hills country club, with doors opening at 10:30 a.m.

Two of her Westchester neighbors are running for governor.  While Rob Astorino advocates cutting dental and prescription benefits for seniors on Medicaid (a “let them eat soup” ad has been running for weeks), Andrew Cuomo has recruited his all-female family for an ad that educates voters on gender inequities.  The Women’s Equality Party he started held a rally at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan today, and Hillary Clinton was the featured speaker supporting the Cuomo-Kochul ticket.
