Hillary Clinton kicked off her campaign’s bus tour through Pennsylvania and Ohio on Friday, a day after she accepted her party’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

Clinton started off the tour with a rally at Temple University in Philadelphia. The former secretary of state admitted at the event that “it was hard to go to sleep” on Thursday night after she accepted the nomination, adding that it was “kind of overwhelming” and exciting.

She is now on the road with her husband, Bill, running mate Tim Kaine, and his wife, Anne. The tour in those states is crucial to the campaign, as Pennsylvania and Ohio are swing states, and could be a deciding factor in the race.

In her remarks at Temple University, Clinton vowed to break the gridlock in Washington during her first 100 days of presidency.

She also said they would “make the biggest investment in new good-paying jobs since World War II. We’re going to do it in infrastructure, technology, clean energy, advanced manufacturing.”

She also noted that election day is only about 100 days away.

Clinton also took a jab at Trump while speaking at the rally, saying he has painted a negative, dark, divisive picture of America. She also criticized the Republican candidate for focusing on attacking her specifically during his speeches instead of talking about how to help people.

“He doesn’t make anything great in America except bankruptcies,” Clinton said.

In her nearly hour-long speech at the last night of the DNC, Clinton attacked Donald Trump, asking people to imagine what it would be like to have him in the oval office with the nuclear codes. She also tried to woo Bernie Sanders’ supporters as she urged for unity among Americans.
