President Clinton Supports Our Historic Campaign
By Kenneth Megan
The crowd of thousands cheered as Bill Clinton took the stage in support of Tom Barrett. His speech evoked the values he championed as President; his call for unity echoed the powerful message of our campaign to reunite Wisconsin.
In his eight years in Office, Clinton oversaw a period of peace, prosperity and economic expansion. He successfully balanced the budget and even created a surplus (something Republicans like to talk about but never seem to accomplish.) He was a champion of job creation and the middle class, emphasizing results over political gain. His pragmatic views were touted as a "third way;" a philosophy that has been sadly forgotten in recent years.
Today's support from the legendary President reflects the general direction of our campaign. The huge crowd that gathered in Milwaukee today represents our grassroots strength, and further boosts the growing momentum that will follow us to the polls on June 5. Together, we will end the bitter division of Scott Walker and reclaim the great state of Wisconsin.
