Clinton wraps up 'kickoff' rally in New York

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton has wrapped up the first major speech of her 2016 campaign, saying, "I have been called many things by many people. Quitter is not one of them."

Clinton told the crowd of thousands on New York's Roosevelt Island that is something she got from her late mother, Dorothy Rodham. She says she would confide in her mother after hard days in the Senate and at the State Department.

Clinton's speech focused primarily on economic policy, but she also talked about foreign policy. Clinton said that as secretary of state she stood up to Russian President Vladimir Putin and was in the White House Situation Room the night Osama bin Laden was killed.

Two other Democratic presidential hopefuls also have events planned today, Bernie Sanders in Iowa and Martin O'Malley in New Hampshire.
