St. Petersburg, Florida -- Are Democratic presidents better at creating jobs than Republican presidents?

That's what President Bill Clinton said during his speech at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night.

PolitiFact checked this quote by Mr. Clinton: "Since 1961, for 52 years now, the Republicans have held the White House 28 years, the Democrats 24. In those 52 years, our private economy produced 66 million private-sector jobs. So what's the jobs score? Republicans 24 million, Democrats 42 million."

PolitiFact Florida rates this claim: TRUE

Aaron Sharockman with PolitiFact Florida explains the rating in the video above.
