WILLOW GROVE, Pa. (CBS) – Former President Bill Clinton was in Montgomery County last night, throwing his support behind a candidate for Pennsylvania Attorney General.

Hundreds of supporters filled Upper Moreland High School for Democratic candidate for Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

And speaking on her behalf, the 42nd President: “Who’s more likely to do more good for more Pennsylvanians in this job? I don’t think it’s a close question. I think the answer is Kathleen Kane and I’ll tell you why.”

He listed her accomplishments as a career prosecutor and assistant District Attorney in Lackawanna County.

He also mentioned, “She supported my wife in the campaign and I’m grateful.”

The campaign was the 2008 Democratic primary. Kane’s opponent in this primary is former Congressman Patrick Murphy who supported then candidate Obama in 2008. But President Clinton said his backing was not just politics but about Kane’s qualifications.

Winner of the primary goes up against unopposed Republican David Freed who is Cumberland County’s District Attorney.
