Normally, it's the president and first lady who are making the campaign rounds during the lead up to a Midterm Election. This year, it was a former president and former first lady taking on the role of party elders.

Bill and Hillary Clinton were aggressive campaigners for Democratic candidates across the country in the weeks leading up to Election Day.

Between President Obama's low approval rating and Hillary Clinton's widely expected 2016 presidential ambitions, the campaign trail was an open, easy way for the Clintons to shore up some national goodwill.

Representatives for both the former President and the former Secretary of State released their respective lists of campaign stops, though there is an important difference between the two. Bill Clinton's list dates back to February and Hillary Clinton's list only includes stops she made from Sept. 9 on, in spite of the fact that she was making campaign appearances for much of the summer.

As such, Hillary Clinton's list includes nearly half as many candidates as her husband, but all told she did travel to 20 states during the course of the campaign.

Their makeshift scorecard of how many of their picks did well at the polls will be updated throughout the night, but they had one notable early upset. Both Clintons made more than one visit to Kentucky on behalf of Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Democrat who ran-- and lost-- against Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell.

The Clintons are known for their long-lasting memories, and they were sure to help out old friends. New York governor Andrew Cuomo, who was the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development during President Clinton's term, was one such pal who received visits from both Clintons.
