Clinton campaigns in Lexington

While voters were casting their ballots in West Virginia yesterday, Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton was barnstorming the Bluegrass State in a late push to pump up her vote totals in next week’s Kentucky primary. Clinton was in Lexington yesterday afternoon. She hosted an invitation-only event in Lexington with young working parents. During that event, she announced her support for a plan to cap child care fees at no more than 10 percent of a family’s income.

Clinton said child care rates have soared over the past decade and it is now more expensive to take an infant to daycare than to send a student to college. The plan was the key plank in a series of initiatives targeting young parents.
