Clinton Campaigns In Ohio On Labor Day

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton says she won't accept Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's invitation to visit before Election Day, as Republican rival Donald Trump did last week. At a rally Monday in Cleveland, Clinton said she's going to continue to focus on domestic job creation.  Nick Castele of member station WCPN in Cleveland reports.

Clinton criticized Donald Trump throughout her remarks. Speaking in a hoarse voice after a bout of coughing, she said his recent visit to Mexico led to “an embarrassing international incident.” She said she and running mate Tim Kaine would outline their plans for office in a book being released this week.
CLINTON: “We want to win it so we can take all the plans and all the ideas that will improve your lives, that will get the economy working for everybody, not just those at the top, which will help make education affordable so college is within reach of everyone.”
Their rally was the culmination of the city’s annual Labor Day parade, and introducing them were two national union leaders, the presidents of the AFL-CIO and AFSCME.
