    Former presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, visited the Bay Area Friday to join fans for a book signing in San Francisco and a keynote address at a Stanford Conference on global digital policy.

    Clinton made her first Bay Area stop at Books Inc. on Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco to sign copies of her new memoir, titled "What Happened." The event, which sold out in less than 18 hours, had more than a thousand fans hoping for a few seconds to say hello and thank you to the former Secretary of State.

    “I am feeling really inspired and a mess. I just love her, she is an incredible human being,” said a fan and volunteer for the Clinton campaign in Washington state, Shelby Healy.

    Clinton was then slated to head south to attend the launch of the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law’s Global Digital Policy Incubator at Stanford University.

    During her keynote speech, in CEMEX Auditorium, Clinton said the United States is in a cyber war with Russia. 

    "We learned just this week some of the Facebook ads specifically targeted Michigan and Wisconsin," said Clinton. "Two states that decided the election with razor-thin margins which suggest the Russian strategy was more sophisticated than we knew."

    The former Secretary of State continued to discuss Russia's involvement with fake news, encouraging lawmakers to take cyber threat security.
