Clinton headlines GOTV rally in Oxford

Posted: Updated:

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton says young people will commit "malpractice" if they vote for Republicans this fall. Clinton spoke to an estimated 2,000 people Thursday during a get-out-the-vote rally on the University of Mississippi campus.

He urged people to support Democratic U.S. Rep. Travis Childers, a north Mississippi Democrat who's seeking a second term. Clinton says Childers and other Democrats have voted to make student loans more affordable.

Childers faces Republican Alan Nunnelee and seven independent or third-party candidates in the Nov. 2 election.
