Bill Clinton visits Evansville one week before IN Primary

John Gibson

Former President Bill Clinton paid a visit to Evansville Tuesday, and he took a coffee break downtown. 

The former president met with local Democratic leaders and spoke at the Central Labor Council one week ahead of the Indiana Primary, in which his wife Hillary is battling Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination.

After the meeting, Clinton and his entourage visited Penny Lane Coffee House, where he mingled with supporters.

Clinton was asked if his wife will establish a local campaign office. He said he didn't know, and that he was visiting the city just to "see people."

Clinton was also asked about how Hillary would keep companies from moving out of the country. He said companies could get tax credits for profit-sharing with their employees, not just their shareholders. And if they move out of the country, they'll lose the tax breaks.

While the former president visited Evansville, Hillary Clinton campaigned in northern Indiana.
