Bill, Chelsea Campaign for Hillary in North Carolina


On Sunday, as Hillary Clinton prepared for CNN’s Democratic Town Hall event, Bill Clinton campaigned in North Carolina on her behalf ahead of Tuesday’s primary. Speaking at the Wake Forest School of Law, he spoke about her experience and plans as president. Clinton then traveled to  Asheville where he spoke about the importance of the 2016 election and how it will affect a number of policies including heath care, the economy, and the Supreme Court. He urged voters to support Hillary during Tuesday’s primary saying, “I think you ought to vote for Hillary, not just because she’s the best qualified, or she would be the first woman president. It’s because she’s the single best change maker I have ever known.” Videos from today’s events will be added when/if available.
