Mr. Clinton also mentioned a time during the primaries when he and Hillary were campaigning in West Virginia, a state that showed little promise of going her way.

He recalled telling Hillary, "First of all, [West Virginians] only watch Fox News. But to be fair, they think we only care about our political base and the people that agree with us culturally. And it's not true, but that's what they think."
