Bill Clinton stumps for Hillary at Cleveland State: 'Stronger Together means something'

Bill Clinton campaigns for Hillary in Cleveland

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Former President Bill Clinton was on the campaign trail Saturday, stumping for the democratic nominee for president.

"First you have to vote," he said to a crowd of Hillary Clinton supporters at Cleveland State.

Many in the room had already volunteered. Some had even made campaign phone calls. Others had door knocked to get Hillary Clinton elected.

The former President offered advice on getting undecided voters to go for his wife.

"Stronger Together means something," he said.

With just more than a week until Election Day, the man who may end up as America's First Gentleman also shared his thoughts on why Donald Trump's America is not the way to the future.

"Now look, I know what make America Great Again means, I'm a 70 year old white southerner, I know what it means," he said. "Here's the problem with that, America wasn't so great 50 years ago for African Americans, for Latinos, for first generation immigr ants, for women in the workplace, for Americans with disabilities and their children who couldn't go to school, for gay people, they were in the closet somewhere. It just wasn't that great."

He didn't just urge the crowd to hit the campaign trail, he armed them with the latest endorsement news, mentioning the Daily Arizonan, the Dallas Morning News, the Columbus Dispatch, the Cincinnati Enquirer, all endorsing Hillary Clinton.
