Jul 04, 2006 — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton began a two-day swing through the North Country yesterday. She drew praise in Plattsburgh for helping to arrange a one million dollar grant from NASA to help fund a new aeronautics training program. Shepromised to continue fighting to block strict passport requirements on the U.S.-Canada border. Clinton also made stops yesterday in Champlain and Lake Placid. As Brian Mann reports, the Democrat continues to make inroads in what was once seen as a Republican stronghold.
