Hillary Clinton made another campaign stop in Michigan Monday afternoon.

Clinton spoke to a crowd of over 4,000 people at Grand Valley State University’s fieldhouse, her second Michigan stop in the last few days.

Time was not being wasted. Clinton got to the point telling the crowd why she thinks she's the right choice for the White House.

“It's between strong and steady leadership and a loose cannon that could put everything at risk,” said Clinton. “It’s between an economy that works for everyone or one that is even more stacked for those at the top.”

Clinton didn't stop there. She addressed everything from Trump's tax returns, behavior and past financial issues.

“I’m still pondering how anybody can lose a billion dollars in one year especially when you're running casinos, I do not understand that,” said Clinton.

Outside GVSU’s fieldhouse, lines were as long as a block.

A majority of those in line were college students who some say waited for hours in line. Many were eager to see the woman who potentially could become the next President of the United States.

“The young takes to social media to develop opinions instead of doing the research, being part of a rally, and going to see what the candidates have to say,” said Paige Burgess who supports Hillary Clinton. “That’s why I’m so impressed with the turnout today.”

Trump's supporters seemed to share the same passion for the election.

Some showed up to Clinton's rally to have their voice heard.

“This is going to effect the next four years which in turn is going to effect the majority of our college students,” said Tucker Haske. “I think it is such a great thing to be alive at my age in the crucial part in history.”

With a campaign season unlike anything in recent times, many at Monday’s rally know voting has never been more important.

“I think it's important that everybody participates, be part of this process and then reconcile,” said Cecilia Scow.

Clinton scheduled another rally Monday night in North Carolina.

The Clinton campaign’s watch party will take place at a convention center in New York City.
