DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – Hillary Clinton started her day Sunday appearing at a black church in the state capital, before heading out for a full day of campaigning four days before the state’s first-in-the-nation caucuses.
Speaking of the caucuses, Clinton said she knows “Iowans take it seriously,” and later added the “American people need a president to be their champion.” The New York Democrat spoke from a side lectern, not the pulpit.
The former first lady also talked about her work at the Children’s Defense Fund, and noted that her book “It Takes A Village” was based on an African proverb. She left the church shortly after speaking and before the services ended.
