The Obama campaign is using former President Clinton to help sell its message that President Obama’s policies will continue to build a “strong” middle class.
Clinton appears in Team Obama’s latest ad, released on Thursday, telling voters, “The election, to me, is about which candidate is more likely to return us to full employment.
“This is a clear choice,” Clinton says in the 30-second spot. “The Republican plan is to cut more taxes on upper-income people and go back to deregulation. That’s what got us in trouble in the first place.”
In the ad, which will appear in eight swing states, Clinton — still seen by many as the patriarch of the Democratic Party — speaks about the energized economy during his presidency and says Obama’s plan will help rebuild the middle class.
“President Obama has a plan to rebuild America from the ground up — investing in innovation, education and job training,” Clinton said. “That’s what happened when I was president. We need to keep going with his plan.”
