Hillary Clinton said she got "carried away" by clean energy and advanced manufacturing at a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa on Wednesday.
"Anybody who says to me, ‘Well, you know we can't really transition to clean renewable energy,' I ask them, have you been to Iowa lately?" Clinton said to the crowd.
Clinton said she believed that the United States will become the clean energy superpower of the 21st century under her leadership.
"And some people get a little carried away. Have you noticed that? But I get carried away thinking about all the jobs we're going to create and all the families that are going to have a better chance for the future. I also get carried away by thinking about advanced manufacturing," Clinton said.
Clinton has pledged that she would produce a third of America's electricity from renewable resources by 2027 if elected President. This is an issue that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) spoke passionately about on the campaign trail when he challenged her bid for the Democratic nomination, so Clinton will likely try to appeal to his supporters on this issue.
