Former President Bill Clinton, who was recently polled as our most populat national figure, will stomp for Congressman Maurice Hinchey in Binghamton. Binghamton is the home turf of Congressman Hinchey's Republican opponent. I guess the big guns are being pulled out, not that Congressman Hinchey really has much to worry about.
Here is the press release:
Former President Bill Clinton will speak at a campaign rally for U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey on Monday, according to Hinchey’s campaign manager.
The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Holiday Inn at 2-8 Hawley St. in Binghamton.The doors will open at 6 p.m., and the event is free and open to the public.
Hinchey, D-Hurley, represents New York’s 22nd Congressional District, which stretches from the Hudson Valley to New York’s Southern Tier. The district includes all of Ulster County as well as Binghamton. Hinchey is seeking a 10th two-year term in the House in the Nov. 2 election.
Hinchey campaign manager Liam Fitzsimmons said in an e-mail on Saturday that Clinton will “emphasize the need to continue moving the country forward by electing strong representatives like Hinchey who are fighting for middle-class families.”
