ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that 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.

Appealing to a bellwether region in one of the nation's top swing states, Clinton promoted her plan to spend $275 billion to fix the nation's crumbling bridges, highways and airports, saying it would create tens of thousands of "good-paying" jobs in Florida and across the country. An additional $25 billion would fund a national infrastructure bank, reprising a proposal by President Barack Obama that has been blocked by congressional Republicans.

The Democratic presidential candidate singled out Rubio, Florida's senator, and Cruz, the Texas senator whose campaign has gained momentum in Iowa, accusing them of opposing federal efforts to rebuild the nation's transportation system.

"We've got Republican candidates for president who want to slash what we spend by 80 percent," Clinton said. "Ted Cruz has supported legislation to do that and I really don't understand it Marco Rubio followed right along. He wants to slash funding."

Clinton delivered her remarks Wednesday 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.
