Falmouth, MA - August 1, 2016 - Former Senior Adviser to the President and Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, will speak at a fundraiser for State Representative candidate Dylan Fernandes on why he thinks former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will defeat reality TV star Donald Trump in the 2016 general election.
