On Saturday, Bill Clinton spoke at two organizing events in Pennsylvania on behalf of his wife Hillary Clinton. Between the two events, he also stopped a number of restaurants and businesses in the Philadelphia area. His first event at the Swarthmore Rutledge School where he spoke about a number of Hillary’s platform points including the economy and health care. He asked supporters to vote for Hillary on Tuesday in the Pennsylvania primary.

Clinton then traveled to Ambler where he spoke to a crowd of supporters at Wissahickon Middle School. At the event, he was joined by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly. Giffords and Kelly spoke briefly, but Clinton spent a part of his speech focusing on introducing measures to curb gun violence. Like Hillary, he called for universal background checks to ensure firearms are not getting into the hands of those who should not own one. Clinton also spoke about other topics including health care, higher education costs, and raising the middle class. Videos from today’s events will be added when/if available.
