CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, OH - All eyes are on Ohio as election day inches closer. Sunday, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright emphasized Ohio is a must- win state while campaigning for Hillary Clinton.

During her stop in Cleveland Heights, Albright encouraged supporters to vote early. It's one of several stops she is making during a three-day statewide push for the presidential candidate.

"What is important is that people understand they have to go out and vote and understand that Trump is not a person they want to have as president because he is divisive and doesn't tell the truth," said Secretary Albright.

During a short speech to a packed room of supporters Albright did not hold back criticism of Donald Trump and the sexually lewd conversation he had during an "Access Hollywood" taping in 2005.

"I can't imagine people would say such disgusting things then come out and deny them," said Albright.

Hillary Clinton is not without scandals of her own. The latest WikiLeak hack reveals transcripts of her paid speeches to Goldman Sachs. Earlier this month, more WikiLeak emails released seemed to show the candidate has both a public and private position on Wall Street reform.

During the speech Albright spoke about the importance of standing up for women's rights. Supporters who brought their young girls to hear the speech say they wanted their children to witness history in the making.

"It's very important she [daughter] gets this message and also I want to be able to tell my daughter that she can be anything she wants in the world," said Derrick Williams.

Albright will visit Warren, Akron, Dayton, Cincinnati and the Columbus area during her tour of Ohio.
