A month out from Election Day, Bill Clinton stops in Flint, Pontiac to campaign for Hillary

Oct 3, 2016

Former president Bill Clinton was made stops in Flint and Metro Detroit today on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

In downtown Flint he spoke to a crowd of just under 500 in a ballroom. His focus was on Hillary Clinton’s plans for the economy and job creation.

Life-long Flint resident Anthanette Taylor was lined up to see the former president hours before he was scheduled to start.

Taylor says she is ready to vote for Hillary Clinton, but wanted to hear what Bill Clinton had to say.

“The ills that are not just limited to Flint,” Taylor said. “I mean you know there’s ills all over the nation. But I just feel that Flint just needs to know that with everything we got goin’ on. We need Hillary in the White House.”

Before leaving the state, Bill Clinton went to Pontiac in Oakland County to a call center for Hillary Clinton, where he riled up volunteers.

“Since we’re learning more and more every day about why her opponent should not be president,” Clinton told them. “I recommend you tell people why she should be.”  

Bill Clinton was last in Michigan for the Labor Day parade in Detroit. 

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was in Grand Rapids and metro Detroit last week.
