Former President Bill Clinton endorses new energy standards during Cheyenne visit

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Former President Bill Clinton paid his fourth visit to Cheyenne as he represented for wife Hillary, Apr. 4. Clinton supporters formed a long line out of the Kiwanis Community House doors to hear what Clinton had to say about Hillary's views on the many stances that would affect the Cowboy State. Four protesters stood outside of the venue, holding up several signs to voice their opinions and show their support of the coal industry. ​ Clinton was escorted to the front of the Kiwanis Community House by his staff and local law enforcement, waiving at the cheering line of local residents waiting to hear his speech. It was a packed house for Clinton's speech with people crowding in to get a glimpse of the former president and snag a photo for their own. "I know that the headlines in Wyoming are not good today because of the coal layoffs...but in the end we're going to be facing a new energy future," Clinton said. "But its going to be a long time because Wyoming has the most efficient oil sulfur content in the country and mostly in the world, so this is a cyclical thing." Clinton went on to comment endorse the changing energy standards in the U.S., and joked that he knows its "about as popular as Stage IV Cancer here in Wyoming." "The thing I was proudest of when I was given a chance to serve is that we all rose together," Clinton said. ​ The Laramie County Caucus will be held this Saturday, Apr. 9, at the Central High School Field House Gym. 5500 Education Dr. from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. For more information, visit WyoDems.org . #shortgo #news #whatshappening
