PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be in town Monday campaigning for millennial votes, but she’ll also be fundraising.
Voters in the 20-to-30-something age group are not known for high turn-out, but that doesn’t discourage Rachel Pomerantz, political director of Penn’s student Democratic club.
“That just means there’s so much opportunity to turn out young people,” she said.
Pomerantz is part of “Millennials for Hillary,” a group the campaign has formed to help seize that opportunity.
Millennials have overtaken baby boomers as the largest living generation, according to the census bureau.
Another member, Malcolm Kenyatta, says Clinton is talking about the issues they care about.
“Like college affordability. I have a bunch of debt so this is personal for me,” said Kenyatta.
Before her public speech, Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen will host a fundraiser for the candidate at his Mt. Airy home.
Clinton will meet privately with donors willing to pay $10,000 for lunch, or $50,000 for a smaller meeting.
