Bill Clinton stumps for his wife in Orlando

ORLANDO — President Clinton hit the campaign trail in central Florida to champion his wife's commitment to diversity.

The former president spoke Wednesday to a crowd at a community center in a predominantly African-American neighborhood.

The Democrat from Arkansas contrasted Hillary Clinton's "Stronger Together" campaign slogan to that of her Republican opponent, Donald Trump.

He suggested Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan is reflexive of a time a half-century ago when opportunities weren't great for African-Americans.

Clinton's appearance in Orlando underscores the importance of Florida's Interstate 4 corridor in the presidential race.

The I-4 corridor from Tampa to Daytona Beach is considered the biggest swing region in the nation's biggest swing state.
