Bill Clinton Stumps for Hillary at Jewish Old Age Home in Riverdale

Former President Bill Clinton stumped for his wife, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, at a Jewish senior care home in the Bronx.

At RiverSpring Health (formerly the Hebrew Home for the Aged) on Monday, eight days before the New York primary, Clinton spoke to hundreds of residents about his wife’s record on Israel, national security and protecting Social Security, the Daily News reported.

He also touted the former secretary of state and New York senator’s interest in defending senior citizens.

“We are all living longer now,” said Clinton, 69. “It means that we have to make the most of our elder years. That’s another thing she’s really interested in.

“If you look at the job of the next president, it’s to help people across regional, racial, religious, ethnic and generational lines so we can rise together and live together. We need your help because New York is really important in this election.”
