Clinton to visit Indian Creek High School

WINTERSVILLE — Former President Bill Clinton will attend an Obama-Biden re-election campaign rally Thursday afternoon at Indian Creek High School.

An Obama campaign spokesman said this afternoon Clinton will travel from a rally in Parma, Ohio, Thursday to the rally set for the high school gymnasium.

Clinton and rock star Bruce Springsteen will appear together in Parma early Thursday afternoon.

The campaign spokesman said the gymnasium doors will open to the public at 1 p.m. and tickets will be required to enter the rally.

Tickets for the rally will be available at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Obama headquarters at 104 S. Fourth St. in Steubenville, as well as the Obama headquarters at 301 Fourth St. in Martins Ferry, and at the Obama campaign office at 7843 state route 45 in Lisbon.

An advance team from the Obama re-election campaign was in the area Monday looking at different locations for the rally.

The campaign workers walked through Steubenville High School Monday morning before visiting other sites in the city, including the Louis and Sandra Berkman Amphitheater in the Historic Fort Steuben Park.

Campaign officials announced Saturday that Clinton will stop in the city following a rally earlier in the day in Parma with singer Bruce Springsteen.

The former president participated in a campaign rally at Steubenville High School four years ago when his wife, Hillary Clinton, was seeking the Democrat Party nomination for president.

Approximately 800 people listened to a 50-minute speech by Clinton in February 2008 when he stumped for Hillary prior to Ohio’s primary election.
