WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Former President Bill Clinton made another visit to Rhode Island Monday on behalf of his wife, Hillary Clinton – just one day before the state’s primary.

President Clinton arrived at the Woonsocket Senior Center just before 11:30 a.m.

Eyewitness News cameras were there as Clinton addressed the crowd, which was very much in favor of Hillary.

The state’s entire congressional delegation was also present as President Clinton spoke to supporters.

“I don’t believe in leaving anything on the floor. It’s like a basketball game you don’t want to lose in the last minute and if you need it to, you want to win one in the last minute so that’s what this campaign is like.

You got to bear down and I love this state they’ve been so good to Hillary, to me for a very long time that I didn’t want to leave any stone unturned.”

Mary Lachabelle, of Woonsocket, said she was very excited to see President Clinton and meeting him helped her make up her mind as far as the election goes.

“I’ll probably make me decision today,” she said. “Because of this moment.”

Clinton then stopped by the South Street Landing construction site in Providence to talk with workers.

People gathered on a nearby hill and Brown University college students took to a nearby roof to hear Clinton speak.

Hillary Clinton herself came to Rhode Island on Saturday to hold an event at Central Falls High School.

On Sunday, her opponent, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, held a rally at Roger Williams Park in Providence. Sanders also sat down one-on-one with WPRI.com’s Ted Nesi.

Sanders was in Pennsylvania Monday getting voters excited ahead of the state’s primary, which is also on Tuesday.
