Watch a Crowd Sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Hillary Clinton One Day Early

"That last debate was like an early birthday present, right?"

Hillary Clinton will celebrate her 69th birthday on Wednesday, but that didn’t stop a crowd at a Florida rally from singing “Happy Birthday” to the Democratic candidate on Tuesday.

“Thank you,” Clinton replied to the rally with laughter. “Yeah, you know, you’re right. That last debate was like an early birthday present, right?”
