Travels of Hillary Clinton—September 2016

Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton  |  U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine  ||  Donald Trump  |  Gov. Mike Pence  ||  Former Gov. Gary Johnson

Clinton did few rallies in September.  There was time off following pneumonia, and preparation for the first debate on Sept. 26.  Clinton's coughing episode in Cleveland on Sept. 5 and her wobbly departure from the 9/11 memorial service in New York brought into sharp focus the question of her health, something that Trump and his allies had been raising but had been dismissed by her campaign.  Sept. 9 was a notable day.  First she visited her doctor and received the diagnosis of pneumonia.  She next participated in a "working session" or discussion with national security officials organized by the campaign, followed by a press conference.  This seemed to be quite a successful event as the images conveyed a presidential look.  However, in the evening at a big LGBT fundraiser Clinton made the "basket of deplorables" gaffe.  The Sept. 11 episode forced Clinton off the campaign trail for several days.  Upon returning, Clinton addressed major gatherings of Hispanics and African-Americans, speaking at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute and Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinners and the Black Women's Agenda symposium.  Additionally, Clinton made a pitch for support from millennials in a speech in Philadelphia on Sept. 19.  Following the debate at Hoftstra she finished off the month with events in the battleground states of North Carolina, New Hampshire, Iowa and Florida. CNN's Dan Merica reported on Sept. 30 that Clinton headlined 14 fundraisers in September (nine shown below).

1. Sept. 11, 2016 Statement from Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, M.D.: "Secretary Clinton has been experienceing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning's event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely."
