SPOKANE, Wash. -

Thousands showed up to the rally for Hillary Clinton in Spokane Monday afternoon.

President Bill Clinton was in town stumping for his wife at Spokane Falls Community College.

Organizers estimate 2,000 to 3,000 people were there. Most were outside of the venue listening to the the rally on speakers.

He talked about a variety of issues, including dealing with student debt and plans for improving the economy.

He emphasized that Hillary Clinton is a change maker, saying “she's the only the person who has good ideas, will tell you how she’s going to pay for them, can be commander in chief, and is a proven change maker with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike.” He encouraged the crowd to go out to caucus on March 26.

This comes on of the heels of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ rally Sunday night. He made three stops in Washington, including in Spokane.

Hillary Clinton is headed to Seattle and Everett on Tuesday, ahead of the caucus, but she will not be making a stop in Spokane.
