On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton released her latest ad featuring Erica Smegielski, the daughter of deceased Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung.

In the moving clip, Smegielski believes the former Secretary of State is the only candidate who can reform gun laws.
“No more families should have to go through what we have. Hillary Clinton is the only candidate that has what it takes to take on the gun lobby. No one is fighting harder to reform our gun laws than Hillary.”
In fact, Clinton and Erica’s mother are both strong-willed and strong-minded women.
“She reminds me of my mother: she isn’t scared of anything. And that’s how I know she is the person who can actually make a difference.”
When the 68-year-old won the New York Primary Tuesday night, she dedicated the final portion of her speech to Erica.
“You know, like the mothers of Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin and so many others, Erica has turned her sorrow into a strategy and her mourning into a movement.”
