Everything about political science geek, Kory Gitten's makes him a Babe For Hillary. From supporting her in 2008 to getting involved in 2016. 

"When Hillary announced she was running this year, I immediately made myself as available as possible for the campaign. Mostly in Queens, New York, I signed up to help where I could; phone banking, canvassing, crowd canvassing, rallies, union outreach. Whatever it is, I'm down." Kory is fired up. "It's long overdue this country was led by a woman and nobody else touches her. That simple."

But recent times haven't been easy for Kory and his family, in Queens. He shared that in this last year, his family suffered from a home fire where they lost most of their material possessions, and their house had to be reconstructed. "We're now back in our home, but as a result I had to stop my studies at City College. I was only two semesters away from completing my double major in pre-law and psychology. None of Hillary's competitors offer a plan that makes education more affordable. [Donald Trump] offers no plan, and [Bernie Sanders] wants to make it free by passing the cost onto others. Under the latter plan, my parents and I would have to pay higher taxes. We are already strapped from the fire and the steep cost of living in New York City."

Kory also added that Hillary's rich involvement in CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Plan), and her vast experience and resilience are a few more reasons why she will continue to have his support.
