NASHUA, N.H. – Rita MacAuslan has been waiting since 2000 for an appropriate time to wear one of her favorite T-shirts. It is a little faded now, but her 1992 “Bill Clinton for President Committee - New Hampshire Primary Night” commemorative T-shirt seemed appropriate to wear today, she said, since Bill and now Hillary were appearing in her town together for the first time in 15 years.
MacAuslan, 55, of Nashua, said that she and her husband Joel first became Clinton fans when Bill campaigned in coffee shops around the state, appealing for their votes in the 1992 New Hampshire Primary.
“Both of us became strong supporters and have been ever since,” said MacAuslan.
That said, her support for Hillary’s campaign does not entirely flow from her previous support of Bill.
“Hillary is no Bill, but she has different talents this country needs,” she said.
MasAuslan and her husband were among over 1,200 attending the rally on the campus of Daniel Webster College.
