Hillary and Bill Clinton Take Part in First Public Outing Since She Announced Presidential Run

The veteran campaigners were all smiles as they took part in Chappaqua's Memorial Day parade


Hillary and Bill Clinton didn’t stray far from home for their first public appearance together since the former First Lady joined the presidential race last month.

The duo were all smiles as they took part in the Chappaqua Memorial Day parade Monday, not far from their home in the Westchester County, New York, community.

As the crowd loudly cheered “Hillary 2016,” the former First Couple looked every bit the veteran campaigners as they mingled with well-wishers, flashed the thumbs-up sign and posed for selfies, per The Journal News.

Although this is the first time the duo have taken part in a public event together recently, they have been spotted out a couple of times since the onetime secretary of state threw her hat in the ring. Earlier this month, the couple joined daughter Chelsea Clinton for a Mother’s Day dinner. The pair also recently took in a performance of The Audience with Helen Mirren on Broadway.

But Hillary Clinton looked in full-fledged campaign mode Monday as she answered questions from reporters and the public, and she explained her reason for taking part in the event.

“Many of our veterans came home from combat with injuries of all kinds,” she told the press, per the News. “This is a way of demonstrating that they are not forgotten, and we are going to make sure we do everything we can to honor their sacrifice.”
