GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – Former president Bill Clinton made a stop in Greenville to make a pitch to his wife’s supporters and those undecided.
Former president Bill Clinton drew a crowd of hundreds in Greenville Monday morning. He covered Hillary’s stance on everything from health care to jobs and called her a world class change maker.
“I want to thank Hillary Clinton and President Clinton for making the people of eastern North Carolina a priority on your path to the White House,” said Mayor Allen Thomas, Greenville.
Thomas joined more than 250 people in supporting the Clinton campaign.
President Clinton said his wife stands out against her opponents no matter their party affiliation.
“It’s obvious what we have to do,” said Fmr. Pres. Bill Clinton, (D) campaigning for Hillary Clinton.
“Not to make America great again, we never stopped being great. We’ve got to make America whole again so everybody’s a part of the future and everybody has a chance to live up to their God given potential, which means, as Hillary has said repeatedly, we have to build those ladders of opportunity.”
Congressman GK Butterfield said Clinton’s visit is about the bigger picture.
“This is not just an opportunity to see a former president that we are so proud of, this is not just a speech today, this is a get out the vote rally,” explained Rep. G.K. Butterfield, (D) U.S. House District 1. “We need, we need to vote!”
North Carolinians have the chance to vote in the state primaries Tuesday.
