VIDEO: Former President Bill Clinton Campaigns for Obama in Green Bay

UPDATED: Friday, October 19, 2012 --- 9:31p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton says President Barack Obama is facing a tough re-election race because "impatient" Americans haven't fully recognized an economy on the mend.

Campaigning for Obama Friday night in Green Bay, Wis., Clinton urged voters to stay the course as more signs of a recovery sink in. Clinton says voters should judge Obama on the final three years, in which private sector job growth has made up for lost ground.

Republican Mitt Romney argues that the tepid recovery is grounds for a change.

Clinton won Wisconsin in both of his presidential campaigns. Republicans think they can flip the state, which hasn't gone to them since 1984. Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan is on Romney's ticket and has campaigned there heavily in the past few months.
