Clinton signed copies of her book “Hard Choices” at R.J. Julia Booksellers on Boston Post Road. The event began around 4 p.m., but the line started forming early, and if you wanted a chance to shake hands with Mrs. Clinton this is one signing that required a ticket.

Organizers however aren’t saying exactly how many of those they gave out but based on or observations it is certainly safe to say hundreds. As for those who did manage to stop by some say it was a great experience.

Not everyone in Madison was happy about Hillary’s stop in Connecticut. There were some people standing across the street protesting her visit.
