WARREN, Mich. (AP)  Hillary Clinton is expected to play up her focus on job development, public works projects and tax policy when she outlines her economic plan during a visit to a manufacturing company in Warren, Michigan today. We'll have live coverage of her remarks on WXXI-AM 1370, WRUR 88.5 FM, on our live stream and our mobile apps.


She's not expected to come out with any major new policies during her remarks. But Clinton intends to try to make the case that rival Donald Trump's agenda would benefit him and his wealthy friends.
