Clinton said she would allocate $250 billion to direct investment by the federal government in crumbling roads, bridges, transit and airports.

It was Clinton's second major policy event in Boston. Other candidates that have held large-scale rallies in Massachusetts include Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Donald Trump.
