Terry McAuliffe at Town Hall Meeting
On Monday April 27th, former President Bill Clinton will join Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe at campaign stops in Richmond and Roanoke. President Clinton will discuss McAuliffe’s decades of experience creating jobs and turning around businesses and highlight why he is the candidate best positioned to get Virginia’s economy back on track.
“We’re thrilled to have President Clinton join Terry on the campaign trail,” said McAuliffe campaign manager Mike Henry. “As a former governor and close friend of Terry’s, he’ll talk with Virginians about why Terry is best suited to turn Virginia’s economy around. And as America’s last great job-creating President, he’ll help make the case as to why Terry will be Virginia’s next great job-creating governor.”
During his two terms in the White House, President Clinton oversaw the longest economic expansion in U.S. history, including the creation of more than 22 million jobs. He headlined the Democratic Party of Virginia’s annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner earlier this year, and campaigned for President Barack Obama in Roanoke and Richmond last October.
The McAuliffe campaign will release specific details on the events in the coming days.
