FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

UPDATED: President Bill Clinton to Headline Change We Need Rallies in Roanoke and Richmond Sunday

RICHMOND, Va. — Former President Bill Clinton will headline Change We Need rallies Sunday evening in Roanoke and Richmond.  On his first sweep through the commonwealth to campaign on behalf of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, Clinton will discuss Obama’s plans to jump start the economy, provide affordable health care to Virginians and bring a responsible end to the Iraq war.

Clinton, who campaigned for his wife Senator Hillary Clinton during the primaries, will outline the differences between Obama’s plan to provide a new direction for the economy, cut taxes for 95 percent of working Americans and create good jobs here in the commonwealth and John McCain’s prescription for more of the same failed Bush policies that have landed the country in the current economic mess.

President Clinton was the first Democratic president in six decades to be elected twice – first in 1992 and then in 1996. Under his leadership, the country enjoyed the strongest economy in a generation and the longest economic expansion in U.S. history, including the creation of more than 22 million jobs, leaving George Bush with a record surplus that has since been squandered.

After leaving the White House, President Clinton established the William J. Clinton Foundation with the mission to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.

Additional details will be announced in the coming days. The events will be free and open to the public.
