Clinton promotes $275B infrastructure plan during Florida visit

-
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says Republican rivals Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio would "slash" spending on projects to fix aging roads and bridges, urging Congress to pass a plan to rebuild the nation's transportation system. 
 
She says her plan to spend $275 billion to fix the nation's crumbling bridges, highways and airports would create tens of thousands of "good-paying" jobs in Florida and across the country. 
 
Clinton delivered her remarks Wednesday in Orlando before hundreds of enthusiastic supporters crowded into a gymnasium. They waved signs in English and Spanish. The region is home to many Puerto Rican voters. 
 
The event was part of a two-day visit that includes a flurry of private fundraisers, from Miami to Jacksonville. It was her fourth visit to the coveted swing state.
