Bill Clinton has had experience campaigning in Broome County for his wife and for a member of Congress.

The first time he appeared locally, President Clinton spoke in the Grand Ballroom of the Fountains Pavilion in Johnson City. The October 2000 event was a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, who was running for the United States Senate.

Clinton returned to the county a decade later, after he had left office. He was the guest speaker at a reelection campaign event on behalf of Congressman Maurice Hinchey.

Area Democrats have been awaiting official word on another local campaign appearance by Clinton… this time on behalf of his wife’s presidential campaign ahead of the New York primary.
