"My Story" +

0:60 ad announced Dec. 1, 2015 run in SC.



Hillary Clinton: “I want to tell you a story.  It’s the story of a young girl, abandoned by her parents when she was just fourteen.  She ended up working as a housemaid for a kind woman who encouraged her to go to high school and get her education.  That young girl was my mother. 

“I’m Hillary Clinton and my mother’s story taught me that every child needs a champion.  No one should be written off. 

“After law school, I went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund, and I came here to South Carolina to work on behalf of kids.  I’ve had many jobs since but working here on the problems facing children helped shape my fight for families. 

“I served proudly in President Obama’s cabinet, and I’m running for President now to make sure every child has a chance to live up to his or her God-given potential and that every family can get ahead and stay ahead.

"This is Hillary Clinton. I approve this message and I ask you to join me in this fight.”

In First Radio Spot, Clinton Highlights Her Fights for South Carolina Children and Families

In a new radio ad set to begin airing today on predominantly African American stations in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton speaks of her fights to ensure every South Carolina child can live up to his or her God given potential and families can get ahead and stay ahead.

Clinton invokes her mother’s story of being abandoned by her parents and her own story of working at the Children’s Defense Fund for South Carolinian Marian Wright Edelman after graduating law school. Clinton's work for the Children's Defense Fund in the Palmetto State included investigating the plight of children in adult South Carolina jails.
