Former President Bill Clinton was greeted by a full house at Woodrow Wilson Jr. high school to campaign for his wife, former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

“I met Hillary 45 years ago this march, and she is the best change maker I know,” said President Clinton.

He addressed talking points we've heard before in this election cycle, “this election is about rebuilding the middle class, giving the poor people the chance to work their way into it, maximizing the promise of America and minimizing the problem.” 

He also talked about his wife's accomplishments: from her time as an attorney to most-recent work as secretary of state.

“Every place she has ever gone, she has made good things happen,” said President Clinton. 

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is being judicious showcasing the former president, but needs a boost as Vermont senator Bernie Sanders has climbed dramatically in recent polls.

“I think he has always made sense, he has always been a passionate person when it come to people in the middle class,” said attendee Jeffry Loope.

Others who came to see the former president were not disappointed.

“I think she will make a good president,” said Connie Meyers.
