BROOKLYN - Hundreds of people lined up to see Hillary Clinton speak at Medgar Evers Gymnasium in Crown Heights Tuesday, but there were also protesters outside the venue.

Despite the cold weather, Clinton supporters came from as far away as Texas to attend her campaign rally.

A small group protested what they called Clinton's "hawkish" policies as secretary of state and her husband's support of a controversial Haitian president.

Supporters arrived early and said they endorsed her for various reasons. Some said they wanted to see the first female president. Others said she's more pragmatic than her rival for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Others said a vote for Sanders would be like a vote for Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

New York's presidential primary will be held on April 19.
