The Trump sex scandals are exploding right now across social media and cable news. For all the latest, keep following Hillary HQ on Twitter and Facebook. But since there's only so much that one blogger can do in a single evening, I'm choosing to focus on the positive case for our next president.
Hillary had a rally in Pueblo, Colorado today, her first in that state in quite some time.
But wait, you may ask, isn't Colorado considered pretty safe? Yes it is!
So why rally in Pueblo? There's a fascinating and encouraging reason.NEW, from Pueblo: Clinton super PAC @prioritiesUSA axes its final 2 weeks of TV ads in COLORADO https://t.co/F5PC3RmWuI— Gabriel Debenedetti (@gdebenedetti) October 12, 2016

Hillary Clinton told more than 2,660 people Wednesday in Pueblo that Donald Trump talks a good game of making American great again, but his words don’t match his actions.Watch the full speech above.
Clinton, surrounded by a mass of cheering supporters at the Palace of Agriculture on the Colorado State Fairgrounds, said “Donald Trump says he wants to make America great again. That would be true, if he made anything in America. And (Puebloans) know, because of steel.
“He has bought Chinese steel for his buildings, not American steel,” she said amid boos for Trump. “He could be buying American steel, he should be buying American steel. If he wants to make America great again, start by making America with American steel.”
The United Steelworkers have criticized Trump for using foreign steel in his buildings in Chicago and Las Vegas.
In her 35-minute speech, Clinton made many promises but, for the most part stayed away from the ugliness for which this campaign has become known.
She said her administration would work for the middle class by allowing the refinancing of college tuition debt, making state college free for working families, raising the national minimum wage, doubling the child tax credit, getting equal pay for women and working from the beginning on immigration reform.
“I will never raise middle-class taxes,” she promised.
She continued in an economic mode, saying that her plans would raise taxes on the richest Americans and corporations and would not be the trickle-down plan she said Trump proposes.
President Barack Obama came in for praise because the country is now better off than when he took over “during the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression,” she said.
“Trump wants to give trillions in tax breaks to billionaires and millionaires, he wants the biggest tax breaks for the wealthy,” Clinton said. “I want to invest in your jobs and your future.”
Just then a loud Trump supporter was being hustled from the floor, frantically waving a sign.
“You do have to feel sorry for them,” Clinton said. “(The Trump campaign) has had a bad couple of weeks.”
