Another day, another Democratic presidential candidate comes to Flint to talk about water.

Monday was Washington Governor Jay Inslee’s turn.

At a north Flint community center, Governor Inslee talked about the federal government’s role in helping cities like Flint with drinking water issues….

“Flint’s seen it big time but this is not the only community. We’ve got billions of dollars of infrastructure work we’re going to have to do all over the United States.”

Several Democratic presidential hopefuls have stopped in Flint in recent days.  More visits are expected this week, .as 20 Democratic presidential candidates take part in two debates in Detroit.

Flint’s water crisis is expected to be mentioned during the debates on Tuesday and Wednesday.
