When Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mom, decided to run for office, she was already familiar with life on the campaign trail. She'd been out on the road with former Secretary of State and then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016. In a new interview on The Hill's "Rising" program for Hill.TV, Trayvon Martin's mom said Hillary Clinton inspired her run for office. She said it pushed her in "the right direction."

"Campaigning for Secretary Clinton made a big difference," Fulton told Hill.TV. "It kind of planted the seed for me, but I still wasn't ready until I prayed on it, and it took almost a year in order for me to decide to run."

Fulton didn't make the decision lightly. "I did my research and decided, you know, what seat I fit best for and what position and how I feel like I can make change in my very own community," she told Hill.TV.

Fulton is running for one of the five open spots on the 13-member Miami-Dade County Commission. She announced her campaign in May. "Since 2012, I have advocated tirelessly to empower our communities and make them safer," she said in a statement announcing her candidacy. "But the work is not done. I am proud to announce that I will run to represent District 1 on the county commission
