In order to attend a recent Hillary Clinton presidential campaign event in Ohio, voters were required to sign a loyalty pledge, according to a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporter.

Salena Zito, a staff writer and editorial page columnist for the Tribune-Review, posted a copy of the pledge to Twitter and said it was a requirement for those wishing to attend the event in Cleveland, Ohio over the weekend.

"I [signed] commit to vote for Hillary Clinton," the pledge begins.

Signatories can than pledge to commit from a list of boxes "any that applies" which includes volunteering on a college campus, hosting a grassroots fundraiser, attend an organizing meeting and collecting signatures.

In a column for Real Clear Politics, Zito wrote that the former secretary of state "misses the mark with Millennials" and displayed a "fundamental inability to read her audience and adjust her speech — or perhaps laziness, or a sense of entitlement that she shouldn't have to work this hard for support."

"I am sort of a Bernie (Sanders) fan. I also had nothing else to do at 10 in the morning," Brian Miller, a chemical engineering student from Pittsburgh, told the reporter prior to the event.

"I am here for Bill. He would definitely liven things up here," David Lituchy, from West Virginia, told Zito.

Clinton has been slipping in recent polls, especially in New Hampshire where she is polling behind Sanders, her fellow Democratic opponent. Although he hasn't officially announced a presidential run, Vice President Joe Biden isn't too far behind. Another recent poll showed Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump leading Clinton.
