Forget Personalities and ‘Likeability’ – Who Will Lead and Who is Best on the Issues Critical to American Working Families?
Presidential political campaigns in the age of the 24/7 news cycle can be quite distracting. The media often supplies saturation coverage on inconsequential stories unrelated to the issues that directly affect our families such as fair trade, wealth inequality, the right to organize, and affordable higher education.

Donald Trump is a salesman and in 2016 he’s selling hate. He’s branded Mexicans rapists and wants all Muslim-Americans to be registered in a database.

When you cast your vote for president, your ballot will show a choice for our next president. The nominees from the two major parties and those representing the Green and Libertarian nominees have spent a lot of time addressing voters under age 35 because they’re an important voting bloc in this election. Young voters face deep concerns particular to their demographic such as repaying skyrocketing college debt, finding a good-paying job to start a family with and feeling engaged in one of the most divisive election campaigns in our country’s modern history. Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate and will find commonsense solutions to those problems. She’s the best choice if you want a president who stands with Americans who work hard to support their families and want fair wages and benefits in return.
