Lovato, Clinton Rock Towards the Presidency and Women’s Rights

Hillary Clinton and Demi Lovato took to the stage of the IMU as a part of Clinton’s campaign.

Thursday night, 1200 people flooded the Iowa Memorial Union to watch presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and musician Demi Lovato take the stage as a part of Clinton’s presidential campaign.

While recent polls have shown Senator Bernie Sanders with a sizable lead over Clinton, her speech focused on her campaign plan.

“I’m hoping that each and every one of you will get interested, be involved, be a part of this process,” Clinton said. “I would be so thrilled and honored if you came and caucused for me.”

Clinton has made her campaign very popular with millennials, inviting musical artists and pop culture icons who support her campaign to speak alongside her. Some of these talents include Lena Dunham, Katy Perry, and, of course, Demi Lovato.

Millennials were seemingly the majority group at the event, and Amelia Morrow ‘18, thinks it’s a good tactic.

“I think it’s great, because while Hillary gets a lot of attention, most of it is negative,” Morrow said. “The celebrities give her good attention, and they get young people interested in her and her campaign.”
