Clinton's Earlier Visits To SD

May 8, 2008, 4:57 PM by Perry Groten

Clinton's Earlier Visits To SD
Clinton arrived in South Dakota today amid calls by some within her own party that it's time to give up her bid for president. This isn't the first time Clinton has been in South Dakota facing criticism and controversy. 

Sioux Falls voters had their first chance to meet Hillary Clinton in January 1992, when she stopped at the downtown Holiday Inn campaigning on behalf of her husband. At that time, Bill Clinton was facing allegations of marital infidelities that threatened his run for the White House. Hillary Clinton defended her husband against the claims. "I hope women voters, and men voters are going to see two people who love each other, have a very strong marriage and support each other." 

Clinton also addressed issues facing the 1992 campaign with students at Lincoln High School. 

In February of 1994, Clinton, accompanied by then-Senator Tom Daschle, visited with people in Lennox. Back then, her role as head of the White House health care reform task force came under fire from those who said a first lady has no business setting national policy. Clinton was in South Dakota hosting a summit on rural health care. "There are a number of things we want to do to improve health care in rural areas." 

But the Clinton health care reform plan went down to defeat amid concerns that it involved too much government red tape. 

The Clintons weathered the political storms of that first term, and a rainy night in Brandon, for a campaign rally in September of 1996. They followed that up with a visit to the Sioux Falls Arena the night before the election. The following day, Bill Clinton was re-elected president.
