Valley Democrats thrilled by Bill
November 1, 2010 - Kathleen Palumbo
“We traded bacon and eggs for Bill Clinton,” mused Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray of what began as a pre-Election Day breakfast hosted by Democratic Party Chairman David Betras, and resulted in a crowd of 1,800 gathered for a nearly 40 minute speech by the former president.
It was standing room only at Mr. Anthony’s Banquet Center in Boardman as Clinton addressed the crowd, most of who had excitedly stood in line for the complimentary tickets to the event, held Saturday, October 30th.
While the premise of his visit was said to be stumping for Gov. Ted Strickland, Clinton also stressed the importance of re-electing Congressional Representatives Tim Ryan, and Charlie Wilson, and Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher for U.S. Senate.
Offering up his disdain for what he said have been by far the worst examples of dishonest campaign ad attacks he's seen, “This is a fact free environment,” said Clinton, adding, “You need to go straighten people out here.”
Ten years after leaving office, Clinton, whose popularity only seems to grow with time, fired up his audience of enthusiastic Democratic locals saying, “We don’t need Wall Street values, we need Mahoning Valley values!”
