IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Iowa Memorial Union on the University of Iowa's campus was full of Hillary Clinton supporters including the biggest one – her daughter Chelsea.

“For me, this is the most important election of my lifetime,” the younger Clinton began.

Clinton spoke mainly about her mother's goals for the country should she be elected president this November, but shared a few opinions of her own.

“I think that paid time off for mothers of new infants is a really important both moral and actually economic issue in our country,” she said.

Clinton touched on global warming as well, and her wish for parents to bring their kids to the caucuses and other events during the campaigns.

Chelsea Clinton also spoke on a concern many Iowans have – what her mother plans to do for rural America.

Clinton said as president, her mother would create new jobs in construction and renewable energy in rural America.

"Our strongest renewable energy potential," she said. "a lot of our greatest potential are in rural areas.”

Other speakers at the event included UI students and Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin.
