TEMPE (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton spoke to several thousands of people at a get-out-the-vote rally in Tempe for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Richard Carmona.
At the rally Wednesday, Clinton rehashed points he made at the Democratic National Convention, discussing the health care law and Medicare.
He also drew parallels between Carmona's biography as a veteran and a surgeon, and government programs that Clinton said built a strong middle class, such as the G.I. bill.
Clinton tried to appeal to the younger crowd, citing changes to student loans passed by the Obama administration and expressing support for a DREAM Act.
The rally at Arizona State University was to kick off early voting. Voters begin casting ballots Thursday.
Carmona is facing Republican Rep. Jeff Flake to replace the retiring Sen. Jon Kyl.
