Hillary Clinton kicked off her rally in Coral Springs on Friday by offering "our thoughts and our prayers" to the family and fans of the late Miami Marlins ace José Fernández.
"When he left Cuba he did not speak a word of English," Clinton said. "He never forgot where he came from."
Fernández, who was buried Thursday after being killed in a Sunday morning boating accident.
"José's life really embodied the American Dream," she said.
Clinton then mentioned a Coral Springs resident: Bob Levinson, a former FBI agent who disappeared in Iran more than nine years ago.
