HILLSBORO, Oregon (CNN) - Hillary Clinton repeated her intentions to stay in the presidential race at a campaign event in Oregon Saturday.
“One thing I hope you know about me is that I don’t quit,” Clinton said, adding she will continue to campaign “hard” in the final ten primaries.
Clinton also again pushed seating the delegates from Florida and Michigan - the two states penalized by the Democratic National Committee for moving their primaries ahead of February 5.
“Some say their votes should be ignored, and discounted…well I have a different view.”
Clinton added that ignoring the 2.3 million democrats who voted in those primaries would hurt in November: “We cannot afford to give up on Michigan and Florida.”
During her speech in Memphis later Friday, Hillary Clinton will announce the creation of a new cabinet position if she becomes president to deal with poverty.
The cabinet member will be called the "Poverty Czar."
