GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – With hundreds of delegates up for grabs on Super Tuesday, former President Bill Clinton made a stop in Greenville.

More than 250 packed a room at the Hilton for a morning rally to his wife’s supporters and undecided voters.

Mayor Allen Thomas and Congressman G.K. Butterfield introduced the former president.

Clinton touched on Hillary’s stance on a variety of issues, from healthcare to creating job opportunities for people in poverty.

“Hillary is not against success,” said Fmr. Pres. Bill Clinton. “But she thinks we need to ask the people who have made all the money since the crash to help everybody else make money now and right now if we’re going to rise together. So you ask all those folks to pay more, but not for their own kids’ tuition. They should be paying more to put the rest of America to work in good jobs so we can all rise together.”

From Greenville, Clinton heads to Florida where voters will also hit the polls Tuesday.

Clinton spoke at a rally for his wife in Raleigh one week ago.
