Clinton Pledges New Economic Plan, Campaigning In Hard-Hit Nevada

Hillary Rodham Clinton says Congress should take action to revive the economy and contain a mortgage crisis that she called an epidemic.

The New York senator made the comment in Las Vegas where she is
campaigning ahead of the Jan. 19th caucus.

The stop was the first since Clinton won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.

She visited an east Las Vegas neighborhood and led a discussion of the mortgage crisis.

Nevada reported one foreclosure filing for every 152 households, the highest rate in the nation for the 11th month in a row.

Clinton told reporters she would urge Congress to pass an economic stimulus package.

She did not immediately disclose details.
