President Bill Clinton spoke at a "Get Out the Vote" rally on November 1 in the Wunderley Gymnasium on the campus at Penn State Greater Allegheny. He spoke on the platform with gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato to a crowd consisting of faculty, staff, students, and community members. Chancellor Curtiss E. Porter welcomed everyone to the campus and shared the dais with other local and state officials.  

The rally began at noon when the doors were open to the public and at approximately 12:40 p.m., Porter welcomed the crowd to the campus. The crowd applauded and cheered when President Clinton was announced and Dan Onorato walked onto the stage with him. Clinton spoke for nearly 35 minutes. After his speech, Clinton walked along the barricade line shaking hands and posing for pictures with supporters before departing for another event.
