New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen focused on the opioid and heroin addiction epidemic during her speech Monday night at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Shaheen shared with the audience the grim statistics from her home state, where more than four hundred people died of drug overdoses last year.
And she says while Hillary Clinton will work to solve the problem, Clinton’s opponent – Republican Donald Trump – doesn’t have a plan to deal with the issue.
“In fact, Donald Trump doesn’t seem to know what’s happening outside of Trump Tower. And he seems completely uninterested in finding out. How can Trump represent America when he doesn’t even take the time to know America?”
Pam Livengood of Keene also spoke Monday night, telling the story of how she’s taking care of her grandson because of his parents’ struggles with addiction.
