Via Columbus Dispatch:
Ahead in a presidential race that’s rapidly transforming before voters’ eyes, Hillary Clinton drew what was called the biggest crowd of her campaign Monday night at Ohio State University.This is what momentum looks like! Hillary is definitely going to win Ohio.
And she wasted no time launching a pointed but measured dissection of Donald Trump’s vulgar video and debate performance.
The GOP nominee “spent his time last night attacking when he should have been apologizing,” Clinton said a few minutes after taking the outdoor stage on a chilly night at the South Oval.
“We all heard on that tape what he thinks of women and how he treats women,” Clinton said as the crowd booed.
“It wasn’t just this one video that was so disturbing and shocking. We have seen this behavior throughout this entire campaign. … He’s targeted others as well.
“He is an equal-opportunity insulter if there ever was one.”
The Clinton campaign said the Secret Service estimated the crowd at 18,500 when thousands watching from outside the secured area were counted. That would top the 15,000 President Barack Obama drew exactly four years earlier on the OSU Oval.
The big crowd — a number topped by Trump at his rallies on many occasions — came as polls show Clinton gaining both in Ohio and nationally.
