As she makes her first campaign appearances of the 2016 presidential race, Hillary Rodham Clinton says she’s not going to “take anything for granted.”
Clinton today is touring a community college and holding a roundtable discussion with students and teachers in Monticello, Iowa.
It’ll be the first of many small campaign events and personal “conversations” with voters, part of an effort by her campaign to tamp down big expectations.
In a fundraising email to supporters yesterday, Clinton vowed to “work my heart out to earn every single vote.”
Clinton’s initial appeals for money will be for small-dollar donations collected over the Internet instead of in swanky fundraising blowouts in New York, Los Angeles and Silicon Valley.
Advisers have set a modest goal of raising $100 million for the primary campaign and will not initially accept donations for the general election.
