Bill Clinton Rallies for Caprio in Governor Race

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton isn't
making much of President Barack Obama's decision not to endorse Rhode Island's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio.

At a rally in Providence on Sunday, Clinton joked instead that
he's surprised Caprio didn't receive the support of the tea party.

Clinton said Caprio's pro-business platform should have broad
populist appeal.

Caprio took offense last week at Obama's decision to endorse
independent Lincoln Chafee, who supported the president in 2008.

Caprio said the president could "shove it."

But Caprio said Saturday he wished he had "chosen different
language," and he said he accepts Obama's decision.

It was Clinton's second campaign visit for Caprio in three
months.
