TULSA (AP) -- Hillary Clinton spoke live in downtown Tulsa Friday at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame.


When Hillary Clinton visited Tulsa in 2008, she focused on healthcare – this year, she focused on the economy and several other topics.

Approximately one thousand people listened to Clinton speak Friday at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame - and they let her hear their support.

In front of a packed auditorium, the former US Senator and first lady laid out her platform, focusing heavily on building the economy.

"We aren't where we need to be yet. We need to rebuild on top of the progress we have already made."

Erin Willis says she is a long time Clinton supporter and agreed with Clinton throughout her whole speech.

"It was great to hear she would continue to support Planned Parenthood which doesn't get a lot of support in our state. Her stance on gun control."

It included Clinton saying anyone on the no-fly list is too dangerous to be allowed to buy a gun

The former secretary of state also pledged to defeat ISIS.

"I've been in the situation room. I know what it is going to take and I will keep America safe!"

Before she took the stage today - a long line extended outside the Jazz Hall of Fame.

"To be in the same room as someone that might be the first female president of the United States- that is just part of history and that is amazing."

Hillary Clinton is the first of the democratic candidates for president to come to Oklahoma.
