TULSA, OK – A crowd of about 800 gathered Saturday morning to hear from former President Bill Clinton as he stumped for wife Hillary to be the next President of the United States of America.
The former president was introduced to the stage by Democrat Super-Delegate and current Principle Chief of the Cherokee Nation, Bill John Baker. President Clinton took the stage to much applause and fanfare. Clinton, suffering from hoarseness, immediately dove into what he considers to be Hillary’s best attributes.
The speech had minimal applause lines, though the largest came when the former president touched on Hillary’s plan to reduce student debt and to expand medical care.
This was the second Oklahoma stop for the 42nd President. Earlier this morning he spoke in Edmond at the University of Central Oklahoma.
There was a brief pause during the rally when a medical emergency took place. Clinton paused momentarily to ensure paramedics were on the way and then continued his speech.
Heading into Super Tuesday, both Clinton and Sanders are fighting for Oklahoma’s 38 delegates. A recent PPP poll has shown the race could be a tight one with both campaigns within a few points of one another.
Elections for the Oklahoma Presidential primary will be held March 1, 2016. You can find more information about the candidates on FortySix News 2016 Elections page.
