Former President Bill Clinton discusses college affordability during a rally held at Wake Forest University on Sunday, March 13.



Last Sunday former President Bill Clinton made a stop in the Twin City to campaign for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid. Hundreds of people packed into a medium-size room inside the university’s law school while nearly another 100 listened from outside.

During his spirited 50-minute address, Clinton addressed jobs, gun control, college affordability, and socioeconomic equality. He also discussed his wife’s lifelong record of breaking down barriers that hold people back and history of delivering real results.

“This is a pivotal moment in our country’s history. You have a choice of voting for answers rather than anger,” said President Clinton. “This is a moment of opportunity.” President Clinton urged the crowd of mostly students to vote for answers and progress instead of protest. He said his wife has the best plan to build on what President Barack Obama already has in place. “Nobody likes what’s happened. But we have to think about what’s best for the future.”

Following his speech, President Clinton took time to address the students outside who didn’t make it inside and had to listen to the speech from a loud speaker. Many of the students said having a former president come to their school shows how important their votes really are.

“A lot of young people don’t usually see the importance in voting,” Marion Burgess said. “Today proves how important our votes really are.”
