On the campaign trail in Waterbury Connecticut yesterday, former President Bill Clinton used the threat of Hurricane Sandy to warn voters of the importance of the election next week.

“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said according to the Connecticut Mirror. “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”

Clinton made his remarks while speaking at a rally for Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Chris Murphy.
