With memories of mom, Clinton seeks reintroduction to voters

Posted:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to draw on her mother's difficult upbringing to cast herself as a fighter for ordinary Americans in the first major speech of her 2016 campaign.

Campaign aides say the Saturday address in New York City will lay out Clinton's rationale for making a second run at the White House.

She will credit her late mother, Dorothy Rodham, with giving her a sense of obligation to help those less fortunate than herself.

Clinton will pay tribute to the hard work of Americans who she will argue helped the country emerge from the economic crisis, arguing they deserve to be rewarded for their sacrifices. "It is your time," Clinton will say, according to aides who described the speech.
