Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton touted early voting numbers in Ohio during a visit to Cleveland on Friday. She attacked her Republican rival Donald Trump for his failure to accept the results of the presidential election. And she congratulated Cleveland for its championship year in sports.This was Hillary's first rally after the final debate of 2016, and it kicks off a mad two-week dash to the finish line. Watch the full speech above (and keep an eye out for the "nasty woman" shirt)!
"What a time to be here in Cleveland," Clinton said in opening remarks to a crowd of about 1,600 people. "You really are Believeland."
Clinton in Cleveland radiated positive vibes about early voting.
"In the first four days of in-person, early voting here in Ohio, more people showed up to vote than they did at the same time in 2012 in our last election," Clinton said. "That is fantastic. And it shows how serious people are taking this election. Numbers like that remind us that no matter all the negativity that's out there, there's something really exciting happening right now."
Clinton strongly criticized Trump's choice not to vow to accept the results of the presidential election. The billionaire has continually warned of a rigged election, and said that he would only accept the results, if he won.
"Make no mistake, by doing that, he is threatening our democracy," Clinton said. "We know in our country the difference between leadership and dictatorship. The peaceful transition of power is one of the things that sets us apart."
