With 24 hours left until the polls close in Philadelphia, Hillary Clinton took the stage inside City Hall's courtyard Monday night to garner voter support.
"The goal here is to make sure we have a Democrat in the White House next year," Clinton told the crowd of 1,300 who were waving signs and clapping throughout her 20-minute speech.
She went on to tell the crowd why she should be the next Democrat president.
She spoke of the need for early childhood education and making college affordable. She also said the country needs more apprenticeship programs for people who opt to go into trade work and not college.
She received a loud applause from the crowd when she said that she wants to help minority and female-owned businesses. The group of people behind the stage held American flags and signs that read "Fighting for us" and "Clinton Country."
"We are finally standing and we will be running," Clinton said of the country's economy.
She softened her cheerful tone when she spoke about gun law reforms, acknowledging that Philadelphia had been hit with a recent shooting spree.
"There's a really terrible epidemic we are going through," she said, adding that on average, 90 people die each day from gun violence.
"Guns do not solve your problems," she said to loud cheers.
The rally also featured a who's who of Philadelphia politics. Introductions were made by City Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, local Democratic party chairman U.S. Rep. Bob Brady and Gov. Wolf. Blended in the crowd were U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah and head of the building trades John "Doc" Dougherty.
