Hillary Clinton is offering effusive praise for Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at their first event together during the presidential campaign, calling her someone who "tells it like it is."
Clinton says in Cincinnati, Ohio, that Warren has worked on behalf of hard-working Americans, trying to ensure that Wall Street "never wrecks" Main Street again and the federal government doesn't profit off student loans.
The Democratic presidential candidate says she also loves to see how Warren "gets under Donald Trump's thin skin." That's a nod to Warren's recent role as one of Trump's most vocal critics.
Clinton says that Trump "proves every day he's not in it for the American people, he's in it only for himself."
Hillary Clinton is taking the stage with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is calling Clinton a fighter who "has never backed down."
Clinton and Warren joined hands and waved to a cheering crowd in their first joint appearance. Warren told the crowd in Cincinnati, Ohio, "I'm here today because I'm with her," and said Democrats would "work our hearts out" to make Clinton president.
Warren is offering a harsh critique of Republican Donald Trump. She says he looks "goofy" in his trademark baseball cap. She warns that Trump "will crush you into the dirt to get whatever he wants."
Warren is a darling of liberals in the Democratic Party and considered a possible running mate for Clinton.
Hillary Clinton says the Supreme Court's ruling to strike down Texas' regulation of abortion clinics is "a victory for women in Texas and across America."
The Democratic presidential candidate says in a signed posting to Twitter that a "safe abortion should be a right-not just on paper, but in reality."
The justices voted 5-3 on Monday in support of the Texas clinics that argued the regulations were an attempt to make it harder for women to get an abortion.
Clinton says the "fight isn't over," adding that the "next president has to protect women's health. Women won't be 'punished' for exercising their basic rights."
Elizabeth Warren is joining Hillary Clinton in Cincinnati Monday for their first joint campaign event.
With Sen. Bernie Sanders fading from the spotlight, Warren is stepping up to reclaim her role as leader of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. She's mobilizing her forces behind Clinton, lending her presidential bid a powerful boost of liberal credibility.
The two women have formed a tight electoral alliance, one that could grow even closer should Warren be selected as Clinton's running mate.
She's currently being vetted by lawyers charged with running the vice presidential process. They've already asked Warren to complete a questionnaire and for documents.
For Clinton, the visit offers an opportunity to win back some of the liberal and younger voters she lost to Sanders in the primary season.
