The gubernatorial campaign will get some presidential power in Charlottesville Wednesday morning. The city is preparing for Bill Clinton's visit. Charlottesville police and secret service are coordinating security for his campaign stop with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.

Charlottesville Delegate David Toscano will introduce speakers at the "Putting Jobs First" rally. He expects Clinton to attract a big crowd to the Paramount Theater.

“It clearly draws the contrast. Bill Clinton is a centrist, results-oriented person who tried to work across the aisle to get things done versus the people who are campaigning for Cuccinelli right now are the ideological right wing,” Toscano said.

City police say all streets will remain open to traffic, but parking restrictions are in place on East Market Street directly behind the Paramount. The rally starts at 10:45 Wednesday morning.
