Vandalia Memories

As part of their campaign tour across the Midwest in 1992, Democrat Bill Clinton and his running mate, Al Gore, stopped at the Vandalia Statehouse, where they spoke to a crowd estimated at 10,000.

After their speeches, Clinton and Gore, and their wives, Hillary and Tipper, were led on a tour of the Statehouse by Judy Baumann, who was then the site superintendent. Also in this photo, taken by Leader-Union Editor Rich Bauer, is Roland Burrus, a Centralia native who was the state's attorney general at the time.
