Clinton tries to win New York with her congressional record
WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton will release a $10 billion plan aimed at revitalizing manufacturing in Syracuse on Friday, part of an effort to highlight her work as a senator from New York ahead of that state's primary later this month.
The Democratic presidential candidate plans to set off on a nostalgia-infused campaign tour designed to remind primary voters of her deep connection to their state.
She's preparing for a drag-out fight in New York. Rival Bernie Sanders grew up in Brooklyn. He is targeting younger liberals in New York City and working-class voters upstate.
Campaign aides said Clinton will hold a series of events upstate with her husband, former President Bill Clinton. The events will highlight her record as a two-term senator and her work helping more economically-depressed parts of the region.
