Hillary Clinton Makes Voters Sign Loyalty Pledge Before Entering Event
Attendees at a Hillary Clinton campaign event in Cleveland, Ohio, were asked to sign a pledge promising to vote for the candidate before they were allowed into the venue.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review‘s Salena Zito attended the event and posted a picture of the pledge on Twitter:

Zito’s coverage of the Sunday event (which the Clinton camp has geared towards millennials) highlighted the Democratic candidate’s difficulty in winning over a demographic that has largely flocked to her primary opponent Bernie Sanders. Zito describes the event as nothing short of a disaster, where the small number of university students who showed up were more interesting in voting for Sanders and seeing her husband Bill Clinton.
UPDATE – 5:03 pm EST: A Clinton campaign spokesman disputed the report:
not true. like other candidates, we offer people a chance to commit to vote but it is not a restriction to attend. https://t.co/yKQUZ5kwog
