President Clinton visits eastern Iowa

Posted: Updated:

President Bill Clinton visits eastern Iowa Thursday, campaigning for his wife and Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton.

President Clinton was scheduled to campaign for his wife at the National Czech and Slovak Museum in Cedar Rapids, but before the rally, he stopped by NewBo City Market.

"I was bowled over. I came down here for lunch to meet a friend, and I walked in, and all the press was here, and I knew they weren't here for me. So, I thought 'Bill Clinton,' because I knew he was in town," Hillary Clinton Supporter, Tony Hamos said.

Toni said it was her first time meeting the man she voted for twice, saying if he could run again, she would vote for him a third time.

"He's a lot more relaxed and friendly, not that I didn't think he would be, but he's very friendly, and very relaxed, and I like that about him," Hamos said.

And, keeping keeping President Clinton on his toes, Bernie Sanders supporter, Kyle Scheer, said Clinton quickly answered questions about education.

"It was really nice. It was really great. He listened. He was very attentive, and I appreciate him taking the time. He really made me feel like it was on a one-to-one level, and I really respect that," Scheer said.

Moments later, standing-room only at the Czech and Slovak Museum as the former President discussed gun control, renewable energy, affordable health care, and even education - saying, Hillary Clinton is the best person for the job.

"I do not believe in my lifetime, we have had a president who was more prepared, not only by experience, but temperament, to step into this incredible mix of promise and peril... ever," President Bill Clinton said.
