WASHINGTON, April 18 (UPI) -- Former U.S. President Bill Clinton has hit the campaign trail to stump for congressional candidates who backed his wife's 2008 presidential bid.

People close to the former president said he wants to help those who publicly backed or helped Hillary Clinton in her White House bid, The Hill reported Tuesday.

Because Hillary Clinton is secretary of state and daughter Chelsea Clinton works for NBC News, Bill Clinton is the only member of the family who can campaign for others.

The Hill reported Clinton was receiving more requests than his schedule can accommodate.

"He's very popular, he makes the case for a constructive role for the public sector and he's a good fundraiser," said Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who is not seeking re-election. "He's as good an endorsement as you get."
