Hillary Clinton is having a rough start to her Labor Day rally, battling a stubborn cough.
The Democratic nominee took the stage in Cleveland coughing uncontrollably, before turning it into a joke about her opponent, Donald Trump: “Every time I think about Trump I get allergic.”
Several people in the crowd began shouting “get her some water.”
She battled through the cough and delivered her speech with some difficulty. Both Clinton and Trump are in Ohio courting voters in this critical swing state.
Editor’s Note: After her long coughing fit in Cleveland, Hillary had another one on her campaign plane.
