LANCASTER, Pa.– Former President Bill Clinton spent time in Lancaster on Sunday night. He arrived in the Red Rose city around 7:45 p.m. and went to the Prince Street Cafe. There, he greeted fans and supporters of his wife, Hillary, who is seeking the Democratic Presidential nomination.

He told the group that he was in the area and decided to make a stop in the city because no one from the Clinton campaign had visited Lancaster County. He also
answered questions about why he believes Hillary is the best candidate for the job.

“One of the reasons I feel so strongly that Hillary should be president is that we need someone from the beginning that can minimize bad things overseas, maximize good things and then has a proven record of getting things done with Republicans that can allow us to grow together,” President Clinton said.

Clinton stayed at the cafe for about an hour and encouraged everyone to head to the polls Tuesday to vote for Hillary.

Her opponent for the Democratic nomination is Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Republicans vying for the nomination are Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Donald Trump.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.  on Tuesday.
