Bill Clinton visits local UAW 652


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton this past Friday, former President Bill Clinton today, and President Barack Obama tomorrow. With the election only two days away, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is making its way through Michigan and today, the focus was on unions.

“Hello Lansing!” former President Bill Clinton shouted to a jam-packed room in Lansing.

Hundreds of people crowded inside UAW Local 652 earlier this afternoon as former President Clinton took the stage to campaign for his former first lady and Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton.

“I believe Hillary will carry Michigan if we turn out,” Clinton stated.

Clinton also talked about jobs, minimum wage and the middle class.

“She says…but what we need is first to create a lot more jobs and pay above average wage,” said Clinton.

Union workers including UAW Local 652 President Mike Green and Winston Williams agree.

“She will allow for us to get our message out so that we are for all working people,” said Williams.

“Look at the car industry, we’re here that’s part of the reason why we’re here is because of Hillary Clinton, President Obama the things they’ve done because of working families,” Green added.

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow also made an appearance to back the Democratic Presidential Nominee.

She says Hillary Clinton is what the state of Michigan needs.

“She understands Michigan and what we need to create jobs and a thriving middle class,” Stabenow stated.

And a thriving middle class is what union workers say, means the most.

“She’s part of the American dream, she’s proved through the years she’s always been there for working people,” Green said.

“I do believe we’re stronger together and you have to decide,” Clinton added.

Voters will have a chance to do that come election day on Tuesday.
