Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stumped in Atlanta on Friday, telling hundreds of supporters that she will defend marriage equality.
Clinton appeared at City Hall alongside Mayor Kasim Reed, one of her high-powered campaign supporters in the state, ahead of Tuesday's primary. The Democratic frontrunner blasted Republican candidates, who have vowed to fight the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage.
Clinton said the Republican contenders stand opposed to a long list of progressive issues that she will defend as president.
“They seem to be against nearly every right that we have achieved in the last many decades – human rights, civil rights, women's rights, gay rights, voter's rights, worker's right. They talk about them as though no one would be offended. Well I want you to know where I stand,” Clinton said.
“I will defend marriage equality and I will work to end discrimination against the LGBT community,” she added.
After her appearance with Reed, Clinton moved a few blocks south for a stop at the State Capitol to meet with Democratic lawmakers.
