Clinton Brings Buzz to UWGB

By Deandra Corinthios. CREATED Oct 17, 2012

GREEN BAY, WI--Details on President Bill Clinton's visit to Green Bay are out. He'll speak to supporters at UW Green Bay this Friday, campaigning for President Obama.

Tickets for the event are available on a first come first served basis, and students we spoke to say they're going to make sure they don't miss out.

Students at UW Green bay are thrilled to have their campus in the political spotlight. President bill clinton will be at the Kress Events Center Friday evening. He's expected to urge students to get out and vote early for President Obama.

  "I think it will be a big step for the Democrats and it will maybe help the students on campus vote democratic," said student Megan Lee.

Students say Bill Clinton is such a big name political figure, you don't have to be a democrat to want to hear him speak. Even republican students are clearing their schedule to go.

"I know he's going to be trying to get more people to swing towards Obama but I'm curious to know his views and what he has to say about Obama and see if he says anything about Mitt Romney," said student, Ben Heicher.

Known for being an excellent speaker, students hope Bill Clinton will spend some of the time talking specifics on the president's plans to fix the economy.

"He'll maybe hopefully shed some light more on what Obama's thinking of doing., where his direction will continue to go," said student Luaren Richter.

  It's an important visit, but most students say they've already made up their minds on who will get their vote November 6th.
