"He has a big support base".
Hillary Clinton was last in MI on August 11 when she delivered a speech on jobs and the economy in Warren. She said she hopes to see the former president and thank him for signing legislation recognizing the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians, of which she's a member.
Former communications director George Stephanopoulos told the story of the effort to go after her in his book, 'All Too Human'.
"It was very interesting and more in depth than (televised debates) with statistics and an actual plan", the 20-year-old Bay City resident said.
The campaign activity follows a Friday rally that attracted thousands to Novi for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who spent an hour railing against Clinton and her ties to Wall Street and the controversies surrounding her using a private e-mail server and the ties between the Clinton Foundation and her time as Secretary of State.
"The most remarkable thing that happened at the Democratic Convention was that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton agreed on an education and training plan", Clinton said. He said his wife stands for tougher financial regulation, debt-free college and universal preschool. "Nobody can justify it".
But a few of Trump's allies have begun to lay the groundwork for an assault that focuses on Hillary Clinton's role in silencing her husband's self-professed lovers and alleged victims. "It's insane to keep young people in prison for nonviolent offenses". Clinton encouraged people to get active in the race.
Congressman Dan Kildee also spoke briefly before introducing Bill Clinton to the crowd.
He added that in MI gun rights are controversial, but Hillary supports "common sense gun laws".
"Hillary Clinton's been calling me a bimbo for 19 years, as well as Paula [Jones] and Juanita [Broaddrick] and Gennifer [Flowers]", she told The Examiner.
