An audience member, who identified himself as a native American, asked Clinton what her mother would do for native Americans if she were elected president."

"Wow, that's a really great question. You're the first person to ever ask me about that in the 32 states I have been in. My mom wants to make sure that every native American and American has health care and education," Clinton said.
