MASON CITY, Iowa -- Hillary Clinton is back in Iowa and she is focusing on a growing economy.

On Monday, the former Secretary of State spoke in front of a small crowd in Mason City.

Clinton says she would increase the minimum wage, and make it a priority to lower debt for college students. She also added she will be fighting for lower and middle class families.

"The deck is still staked in favor of those at the top," Clinton said Monday. "We know that, we have to be especially focued on how we're going to bring about the changes that will ignite opportunity for everybody willing to work hard for it again."

In addition, Clinton noted that small groups offer her a chance to really connect to the people she's visiting at any given time.

“It's really about people-to-people connection if we are really talking about what we want to do, but it will also give me the kind of information I need to be an even better president,” Clinton said.

On Tuesday, Clinton will be in Cedar Falls for a small business discussion.
