For weeks, there has been speculation that Hillary Clinton was preparing a plan to promote debt-free college. That speculation really took off Wednesday when Robby Mook, Clinton's campaign manager, referenced the idea in an interview with CNBC. Asked about how Clinton would appeal to younger voters, Mook said, “What voters are looking for in this election is someone who’s going to be a champion for everyday people. For young people that’s debt-free college, that’s finding that job after you graduate.” Representatives of Clinton's campaign declined to say to Politico that Mook's statement represented an official campaign endorsement of the policy, but said that Clinton would be releasing detailed proposals on paying for college.
