Hillary Clinton tells her supporters that as a longtime Chicago Cubs fan, the team’s World Series game last night was nerve-wracking, and says she hopes to see “even more history made in a few days”. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton told supporters in North Carolina on Thursday that she had been nervously following the Chicago Cubs' historic World Series win on Wednesday night. Chicago native Clinton said that the Cubs victory was emotional for her. "I've been a fan all my life, started watching baseball with my dad, went to Wrigley field. And you know, it's been a long time, 108 years, to win a championship an make history, and I only wish my late father and the great Ernie Banks, Mr. Cub could have seen it happen,' she said. "And who knows, maybe we'll see even more history made in a few days," she said, alluding to the possibility that she could become the first female U.S. president when the presidential election takes place on November 8th. The presidential race has also become increasingly nerve-wracking for Clinton supporters, with her once comfortable lead over Republican Donald Trump shrinking in recent days.
