Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, will be at UC Davis tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 29, headlining a “Get Out The Vote” Rally for Congressmen Ami Bera (CA-07) and John Garamendi (CA-03). The event will take place at the ARC Pavilion at 12:30 p.m., and all three will speak, along with UC Davis student leaders.
Clinton has spoken at UC Davis twice in the last six years — he appeared in 2008 to campaign for his wife, former New York Senator and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, during her run for the Democratic presidential nomination and again in 2012 to endorse congressional candidates Bera, Garamendi, Jerry McNerney and Jose Hernandez. He also spoke at the Mondavi Center in 2002.
The California Democratic Party is organizing the event to encourage students to vote, and Davis College Democrats has created a Facebook page to publicize the rally and encourage students to show up early in order to get a seat in Pavilion, which holds upward of 8,000 people.
