NEW YORK, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Presidential hopeful Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., outlined his jobs plan Monday during a town hall-style meeting in Queens, N.Y.
"Instead of jobs created, we've lost 3 million," he told supporters. " ... This isn't a vision for America, this is George Bush running for re-election by running from his own record."
The meeting, at York College with Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., followed a morning rally in Harlem, during which he talked about his plans to revitalize urban communities by creating access to capital and creating jobs, according to a campaign statement.
Along with California, New York is one of most important of the 10 states with contests scheduled for Super Tuesday, March 2.
Kerry remains the field's front-runner, having won 15 of 17 primaries and caucuses to gain nearly 700 delegates.
