Hillary Clinton makes two stops in the Mahoning Valley

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The Ohio Primary is just days away, and Hillary Clinton is vying for votes in the valley.  After making a campaign stop in Cleveland Clinton made two stops in the Mahoning Valley, one scheduled and one a surprise.

"I am so happy to be back here in Youngstown," Clinton said.

At M-7 Technologies in Youngstown, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton wasted no time hitting some of the valley's biggest issues.  Starting off with a plan to create a level playing field for the U.S. steel and auto industry.

"What has been happening is unfair.  It is wrong we are going to enforce trade agreements and we are going to stop China or anybody else from dumping steel into our market undermining our businesses and our workers."

And in an area hit by tough times economically, Clinton touched on supporting small businesses and creating new jobs.

"Think about it my friend, manufacturing infrastructure clean energy jobs they're jobs that have to be done right here, you can't export it.  We're gonna do it at home and we're gonna put millions back to work," Clinton said.

She also dove into education, saying there should not be any takeover, an issue high on the radar regionally as Youngstown's Academic Distress Commission forms to find a CEO, "I also believe we should do what we know works not fads, not takeovers, not undermining public education.  We need to be supporting public education and doing everything we can do to make it stronger."

As Clinton left the stage reporters were whisked away on a bus to an undisclosed location.  Final destination O'Donold's Irish Pub and Grill Downtown.

When Presidential contender Hillary Clinton entered the watering hole with Congressman Tim Ryan and other the crowd of bar patrons broke out in applause, all saying they were surprised to see the White House hopeful stop in for a drink and some conversation.

Clinton shook hands with the crowd, along with photos, and with the primaries just days away, it won't be long until the nation knows if Clinton's presence left a mark on Valley voters.
