Clinton Boosts Caprio Campaign for Governor

Friday, July 30, 2010

 

Former President Bill Clinton yesterday put his political weight behind long-time supporter Frank Caprio’s bid to become the next governor of Rhode Island.

In his speech welcoming Clinton, Caprio described Rhode Island as “Clinton country.” In the 2008 presidential primary, Hillary Clinton won handily with 108,949 votes compared to 75,316 for Obama.

Speaking before a large crowd at the Rhode Island Convention Center, Clinton urged voters to not repeat the mistakes of the 1990s and elect a Republican Congress. He said Rhode Islanders should needed Caprio as governor because he would implement federal programs President Obama has created to help the economy recover.

The Caprio campaign estimated that 1,600 to 1,800 people turned out for the rally.
