WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney is renewing his pledge to fight for the poor and middle class in a speech that questions Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton’s foreign policy and economic credentials.
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee will appear at Mississippi State University Wednesday evening. It marks Romney’s third public appearance since he signaled interest in a third presidential run earlier in the month.
He questions how Clinton can “provide opportunity for all if she doesn’t know where jobs come from in the first place?” according to speech excerpts obtained by The Associated Press.
Romney also jabs Clinton on foreign policy. He says she “cluelessly” pressed a reset button with Russia while serving as secretary of state.
Clinton is the overwhelming frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination should she run.
