Bill Clinton: 'Hillary Is the Best Change-Maker I Have Ever Known'
Stumping for Hillary Clinton in the last few days of the election in Albany, but it wasn't the former secretary of state at the Desmond Hotel -- rather a former president. Jorja Roman explains how Bill Clinton inspired the crowd to get out and vote on Tuesday.
ALBANY, N.Y. -- Former president Bill Clinton visited Albany Saturday to tell Albany supporters what Hillary Clinton would accomplish as president.
"I believe that Hillary is the single best change-maker, not just in this race, but she's the best change-maker I've ever known. We know what works. What works is when there is inclusive economics and shared prosperity," said Bill Clinton.
Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand warmed the crowd up; telling them why they think Hillary Clinton is the best candidate for the job.
"We need smart sound ideas and that's what he's all about. That's what Bill Clinton was all about and that's what Hillary Clinton is all about," Governor Andrew Cuomo said. "The question is not what do we want to do, the question is who can get it done and win."
"As secretary of state, she fought hard for human rights and equal rights at every corner of the globe," Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said.
President Clinton focused on Secretary Clinton's main platforms, including creating jobs, making sure our economy continues to thrive and implementing plans to make college more affordable.
"I think it's important that the federal government helps to make college more affordable for everyone and to make the debt more manageable. She believes education is a lifetime asset," said Clinton.
But of all the policies he discussed, the thing that hit closest to home for this crowd was Hillary Clinton's close connection to New York state.
"I don't think Hillary was ever any happier at work in her life, then when she was the senator of New York. And she loved working up here," said Clinton.
