VIDEO: Hillary Clinton Rally in Akron, OH (10/3/16)

Akron Beacon Journal:
The Democratic nominee for president laid out her plan for an economy that “works for everyone, not just those at the top” during a rally in Toledo on Monday afternoon. Hours later in Akron’s Goodyear Hall and Theatre, she urged a couple thousand fans to knock on doors and get their friends to vote.

In the 36 days before voting concludes on Nov. 8, Clinton is counting on high voter turnout to overcome Republican rival Donald Trump’s relentless in-person visits to Ohio and other battleground states.

Her speech, nearly identical to the one she gave earlier in Toledo, threw in a few new jabs inspired by recent investigative reports.

She criticized Trump for not paying his taxes, citing a New York Times story that reviewed leaked tax returns authenticated by a former Trump accountant. The documents show Trump, a billionaire real estate investor who took a $14 million family loan to start his business, was eligible to spread $915 million in losses in 1995 to avoid up to $50 million in taxes for 18 years.

“For a long time, we’ve been saying where are your tax returns,” Clinton said.

In the past 40 years, only Republican Gerald Ford refused to release the documents. Clinton reminded the crowd how she pressed Trump to release them in the first debate, which the Quinnipiac Poll showed swing state voters believe she won by a margin of 2-1.

I don't care what Quinnipiac says: Hillary is going to win Ohio! Watch the full rally above.
