When was Hillary governor of NY? Did I miss it? Her economic record in NY, according to Trump, was

disastrous. Does he even know how any level of our government and democracy works. Why does the media not challenge his ridiculous assertions?

2. She famously promised she'd create 200K more jobs in upstate NY when she was running for Senate

 

For a variety of reasons, that did not pan out the way she had hoped it would.

5. Here's a reasonable Washington Post article on the topic

 

Excerpt:

In her first Senate campaign, Clinton zeroed in on upstate, the region north of New York City and its suburbs. Upstate native Balderston said upstate reminded Clinton of rural areas in Arkansas, where her husband had served as governor.

A day after announcing her 2000 candidacy, then-first lady Clinton vowed to infuse more than a half billion dollars into the upstate economy. A television ad ran just before the election, citing the 200,000 new jobs goal. Clinton won by more than 12 points.

In March 2001, she introduced seven bills to stimulate the upstate economy — “part of a larger partnership to spur job creation across our country,’’ Clinton said. None of the measures passed, records show.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/as-senator-clinton-promised-200000-jobs-in-upstate-new-york-her-efforts-fell-flat/2016/08/07/339d3384-58d2-11e6-831d-0324760ca856_story.html


And this is from USA Today, in 2008, when the issue came up during the primary.

Clinton recently called the promise "a little exuberant." During Tuesday's debate with Barack Obama, the New York senator said she was figuring Al Gore would be in the White House.

"When I made the pledge, I was counting on having a Democratic White House, a Democratic president, who shared my values about what we needed to do to make the economy work for everyone and to create shared prosperity," she said.

"And as you know, despite the difficulties of the Bush administration and a Republican Congress for six years of my first term, I have worked very hard to create jobs, but obviously as president I will have a lot more tools at my disposal," she said.

6. Yes, that was a big factor

 

Also, Bush getting elected rather than Gore. Economic downturn spurred by Republican leadership in two branches of government
