Campaign status: Lost

CLINTON: Her parents abandoned her when she was just eight years old. She was mistreated, but she never gave up. And she taught me to do the same. My mom's life and what she went through are big reasons why standing up for kids and families became such a big part of my life.

ANNOUNCER: After law school, she could have gone to a big firm, but instead went to work for the Children's Defense Fund. In Arkansas, she fought for school reform, to change lives forever. Then as first lady, she helped get healthcare for eight million kids. You probably know the rest. The senator who made sure the heroes and families of 9/11 got the care they needed. The secretary of state who joined the cabinet of a man who defeated her, because when your president calls, you serve. And now a new title -- grandma.

CLINTON: I believe that when families are strong, America is strong. It's your time. I'm Hillary Clinton, and I approve this message.
