PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Former President Bill Clinton is urging Rhode Islanders to vote for Democrat Frank Caprio for governor.

Clinton told supporters at the Rhode Island Convention Center on Thursday that Caprio had old-fashioned family values and understands what it takes to get the state out of its financial crisis.

Rhode Island has 1 of the nation's highest unemployment rates, at 12%.

Clinton said he loves coming to Rhode Island because it's among the state where he always gets the most support. His wife, Hillary Clinton, easily beat President Barack Obama in the state's Democratic primary in March 2008.

Clinton said governors are critical to states' success since they're the ones responsible for implementing federal social services programs.

Caprio is the only Democrat in the race now that Attorney General Patrick Lynch has dropped out.
