Hillary Clinton visits Miami to promote book, raise money for Charlie Crist campaign

Former Secretary of State and early 2016 presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton was in Miami on Thursday to sign her new book “Hard Choices,” speak at a commercial real estate convention and campaign with Democrat Charlie Crist.

Clinton’s event with the candidate for governor comes one month after her husband, former President Bill Clinton, stumped with Crist in Miami.

There’s not much detail about the Crist-Clinton event, which was announced last month on Facebook by Bob Poe, the Charlie Crist for Florida committee’s chairman and treasurer.

The 5 p.m. fundraiser takes place after Mrs. Clinton hosts her Books & Books signing in Coral Gables.

Earlier Thursday, the former first lady delivered the keynote address at the 2014 Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Network Convention & Marketplace in Miami Beach.

At the convention, held at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Clinton said she has a “grandmother glow” that’s fueling her campaign for gender equality around the globe.

The potential 2016 Democratic presidential contender is calling on business and political leaders to close the gap between men and women in wages and leadership positions. She says all women should grow up in a world of “full participation and shared prosperity.”

Clinton says new granddaughter Charlotte “has just as much God-given potential as a boy who was born in that hospital on the same day.”
