Bill in Portland 

Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will be in the Bangor area on Saturday.

On Thursday, former president Bill Clinton paid a visit, campaigning for his wife in Portland.

He told supporters at the Portland Expo that Hillary Clinton has the experience and drive to lead the nation.

He says she has a plan to improve conditions on the whole range of national issues, from the economy to the war.

The former president says his wife can help to restore the nation’s reputation around the world.

Governor Baldacci attended the rally. He said Hillary Clinton has been responsive to Maine’s needs in the past, and shows concern for working men and women.

Baldacci also supported Bill Clinton during the presidential campaigns in the 1990’s.
