Presidential visits

An all-ages crowd of better than 2,200 packed the old gymnasium at the Kress Center Oct. 19, 2012 for a campaign appearance by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, who visited UW-Green Bay to urge re-election of the Obama-Biden ticket. The Clinton visit was the first major public appearance by a sitting or former U.S. president on the UW-Green Bay campus. Gerald Ford had a brief, private meeting with local supporters and GOP candidates, and local media, on the first floor of the Cofrin Library during the fall 1988 campaign. Barack Obama, while a candidate in the February 2008 Wisconsin presidential primary, made a campaign stop at the Kress Center.
