California Congressman Jim Costa discusses meeting with Hillary Clinton

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Hillary Clinton's Saturday rally at Edison High School drew around 1,500 to 2,000 people.

And among the crowd was the first of the Valley's members of congress to attend a Presidential rally.

California Congressman Jim Costa helped introduce Secretary Clinton.

He says the criticism about her speech being light on drought discussion ignores her real priorities.

"That was the first question she asked when she entered a holding room there at the Edison gym and I said 'it's been devastating to the farm community, farmworkers and farmers,'" he said.

Costa previewed much of what Clinton would later say, especially by attacking Donald Trump.
