Hillary Clinton In L.A. Today For Roundtable Discussion On Home Care, Then Fundraiser:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to be in Los Angeles today to participate in a roundtable discussion on home care and conduct a campaign fundraiser.

Clinton will meet with home care providers and consumers at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College in her first non-fundraising event in Los Angeles since declaring her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination. The 67-year- old Clinton only conducted campaign fundraisers during her previous two visits to the region as a candidate for her party’s 2016 nomination.

The event is organized by the Service Employees International Union, which includes members in the health care industry.

Clinton has pledged to defend President Barack Obama’s health care law, reduce health costs, slow the growth of overall health care costs, deliver better care to patients and ensure that the savings benefit families.

“Hillary Clinton’s actions speak louder than her empty rhetoric on issues that matter to everyday Americans,” said Ninio Fetalvo, a Republican National Committee deputy press secretary.

“Clinton can’t escape the fact that the failed ‘Obamacare’ law she undyingly supports will continue to cause millions of dollars in cuts to home health agencies.”

Clinton is also scheduled to conduct a fundraiser at the home of music industry talent manager Scooter Braun, who discovered pop star Justin Bieber, and his wife Yael.

The ticket price for what the campaign is billing as a “Conversation with Hillary” is $2,700, the maximum individual contribution for a candidate seeking his or her party’s nomination under federal law.

The fundraiser will be Clinton’s eighth in the Los Angeles area in her quest to become the nation’s first female president. She conducted three fundraisers on Los Angeles’ Westside on May 7 and four June 18-19, one in Newport Beach and three on the Westside.

In her previous Southland fundraisers, Clinton discussed her commitment to being a champion for everyday Americans and outlined the “four fights” that are the focus of her campaign — building the economy of tomorrow; strengthening families and communities; fixing the dysfunctional political system; and protecting the nation from threats, according to a campaign aide who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Today’s fundraiser is part of a four-day, five-state fundraising trip that began Tuesday with events in Colorado in Aspen and Denver, according to the website PoliticalPartyTime.org, which tracks political fundraisers. Clinton was scheduled to be in Park City, Utah; Portland, Oregon; and Atherton in Northern California on Wednesday and in San Francisco today.

The trip is scheduled to conclude Friday with stops in La Jolla and McAllen, Texas.

Clinton’s Los Angeles visit coincides with the start of debates in the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, where the 17 candidates are expected to spend much of the time in two debates in Cleveland to attacking Clinton, the front-runner in the Democratic race.

Clinton today received the endorsement of Rep. Xavier Becerra, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, the No. 4 spot in the House Democratic leadership.

“There is no stronger leader for hard-working Americans who dream to own their own home, send their kids to college and earn a secure retirement,” Becerra, D-Los Angeles, said of Clinton. “No leader comes better tested in the halls of Congress and in the foreign capitals of today’s international hot spots than Secretary Clinton.

“Secretary Clinton has the right experience and the core convictions to lead all American families through our changing economy. And no one knows more about protecting our national security in an uncertain world than our former Secretary of State.

“As President, Hillary Clinton would make sure that our kids can go to college without facing a lifetime of debt, that every American is rewarded for working hard and growing our economy, and that we fix our broken immigration system.”
