DULUTH - After 18 years, former Pres. Bill Clinton made his way back to Duluth for a campaign stop Tuesday. He rallied in support of local democrats and President Obama just one week before Election Day.
After a steady flow of students made their way into the ballroom, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D- MINNESOTA) and 8th District congressional candidate Rick Nolan (DFL) ramped up the crowd before introducing the man of the hour.
Students listened as Pres. Clinton outlined what he saw as differences between the two presidential candidates.
"We have to decide do we really believe in a winner-take-all society? Or we're all in this together?" Clinton said.
Pres. Clinton said Pres. Obama has a solid plan for the future and the nation's economy; that it takes more that four years to turn things around.
He also said republican Mitt Romney has not been specific in his plan.
"His debt plan is: 'I'm gonna dig this hole deeper and how am I gonna fill it? Hey, I'm a business guy, see me after the election for the details,'" Clinton said.
During his 40-minute speech, he touched on the candidates' different plans for health care, student loans, and taxes.
He said it was Pres. Obama's plan that would move the country forward.
"If you want to rebuild the middle class, raise incomes, create jobs and lift the poor, you got to vote for Obama," Clinton said.
Pres. Clinton only spent a few moments speaking with people before he left UMD to move on to his next campaign stop in Colorado.
