ELMONT - Former President Bill Clinton was in Elmont Tuesday to campaign on behalf of his wife Hillary.

Clinton spoke to supporters about how his wife just makes things happen. He said she is a leader and that is what leaders do.

He went on to say that one of the most amazing things about when he was in the White House was that everything Hillary accomplished she did with Republican support.

Clinton also talked about immigration, making college loans affordable and helping small businesses.
