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.
