Clinton Navigates Turnstile Trouble, Subway Commuter Crush in The Bronx

By Eddie Small | April 7, 2016 10:47am

Hillary Clinton smushed into a crowded subway train in The Bronx just like everybody else Thursday.

The former Secretary of State had trouble with her MetroCard, taking about five swipes to get through the turnstile.

The campaign stop came about a week and a half before New York's April 19 presidential primary is set to take place.

Democratic hopeful spoke with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. outside of Yankee Stadium about the need to bring Democrats together heading into the election.

She also said it felt great to be back campaigning in The Bronx, noting that a lot of progress had been made in the borough since she visited during her initial Senate campaign.

After speaking outside of Yankee Stadium, Clinton and Diaz hopped on the subway.

Clinton's visit comes amidst a flurry of campaign activity in The Bronx ahead of New York's primary.

Sen. Bernie Sanders visited the borough on March 31 for a rally in St. Mary's Park, while Sen. Ted Cruz stopped by the Bronx restaurant Sabrosura 2 on Wednesday.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich is expected to stop by Mike's Deli on Arthur Avenue at noon on Thursday as well for a meet and greet.
