Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton spoke at Case Western Reserve University to sir up supporters.

She spoke to a student-heavy crowd and said she would be a champion for children.

Clinton also took a hard stance on guns, calling for support on universal background checks and stating 12-year-old Tamir Rice should still be alive. Rice was shot and killed outside Cudell Recreation Center by a Cleveland police officer who feared the air-soft replica gun Rice had was a deadly weapon. The incident spurred protests in the city. Charges have not been filed against the officers at this time.

“Disillusionment with politics is part of America’s DNA,” Clinton said.

This will mark Clinton’s second non-early state organizing event of the campaign. It’s also her first official political visit to Ohio since she announced her candidacy in April.
