Bill Clinton Campaigns In MontCo, Making Case For Why Hillary Clinton Deserves Your Vote

By Rahel Solomon and Jim Melwert

BLUE BELL, Pa. (CBS) — As the race for president enters the home stretch, democratic heavy hitters continue to keep their focus on Pennsylvania. On Tuesday afternoon, former President Bill Clinton campaigned for his wife, Hillary Clinton at Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell.

The Philadelphia suburbs will be key in the November presidential election, as Clinton makes the most recent stop in the area.

Clinton told the crowd of 600 people that the United States would be better off if it functioned like a community college. “It’s open to everybody without regard to race, religion, income, politics, abilities and disabilities, sexual orientation, whether or not you’ve got a tattoo.”

Clinton says there’s been enough acid poured down the throats of the American voters, but not many solutions, as he laid out what his wife would do to solve problems.

“This is a job, being president,” said former President Bill Clinton. “It matters if you have any ideas that make common sense and can really get something done.”

His appearance comes as a new CBS National Poll shows Hillary Clinton’s lead over Republican Challenger Donald Trump is growing and now stands at nine points.

In response to Bill Clinton’s visit, Greg Manz of the Pennsylvania Trump/Pence campaign released a statement and said in part, Clinton’s visit is a good reminder for Pennsylvania voters of the widespread corruption and pay-to-play scandals at the State Department during Hillary Clinton’s tenure…and their bullying the victims of his sexual predatory behavior in the workplace.”

Clinton did not address the allegations of rape and sexual assault that have recently resurfaces against him, instead choosing to focus Tuesday on issues like the economy and health care.

Kim from Blue Bell said that she thinks he made a solid case as to why Hillary Clinton is the best person for the job. “And it was much more positively disposed rather than negative vitriol that you hear on the TV all the time, so that was nice.”
