Former President Bill Clinton had a

scheduled visit to Louisiana on Friday to campaign for Hillary in the presidential primary, but it was quite a shock when he stopped in LaPlace Friday morning, thanks to the request from local attorney Danny Becnel, who has played a major role in fund raising efforts for Hillary.
