SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- President Obama's former White House press secretary made a visit to Schenectady. Robert Gibbs spoke to a crowd at Union College's Memorial Chapel discussing some of the key issues that will be a part of the upcoming 2012 elections.
Gibbs stepped down as press secretary earlier this year to serve as an outside adviser to Obama's re-election campaign. He says the presidential campaign could be beneficial to Obama in a sense that he can work to convince Americans that he will not give up on fixing the economy.
"People will be able to judge his track record, again a blessing and a curse each and every day. And I think that's unique and will be unique in the sense that he's not running as a challenger, he's running as somebody who's an incumbent, so I think he will get a chance to prove to the American people that he continues to have a plan," Gibbs said.
Gibbs says the 2012 campaign will use even more energy, strength and volunteers.
