SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton focused her criticism on President Bush during her campaign stop in Springfield.

Clinton also spoke Monday in Hartford, hammering Bush on economic issues, saying he had lost touch with the concerns of an anxious public.

She spoke before 2,000 cheering supporters at Springfield College.

Clinton, pushing her economic stimulus plan, says the “state of our union is one of economic anxiety.”

A Republican National Committee spokeswoman responded that Clinton has lost credibility with voters and was focusing on “divisive rhetoric and political pandering.”

Massachusetts is among 22 states with primary contests February 5.
