ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) Former President Bill Clinton made one of his last stops before Election Day in St. Cloud.

He made a plug for Sixth District congressional candidate Jim Graves, and then spent about 30 minutes talking about reasons why he thinks President Obama should be given a second term in the White House.

Clinton talked about the president's efforts to re-energize the economy, the auto industry bailout, health care reform, and ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The speech at St. Cloud State's Atwood ballroom drew an estimated 4,000 according to Obama campaign staffers.

Republicans also got a presidential visit yesterday from Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan. He spoke to supporters at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
