Barbara Boxer said she’s family with Hillary Clinton. Her grandson is her nephew.

She spoke of Hillary’s closeness with her family, and talked about her strength and leadership during 9-11, and “when she restored America standing in the world as Secretary of State.”

“During this campaign we’ve seen something else – toughness. The right win has thrown everything at Hillary. Not only the kitchen sink and stove, but the fridge and toaster, too – and she’s still standing.”

“In our country, if you work full-time, you should never have to live in poverty.”

“Her opponent doesn’t believe in the right to choose, and he picked a running mate who said Roe v. Wade belongs on the ash heap of history.”
