Clarification: Campaign 2016-Road to 270 story

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) — In a story July 10, The Associated Press reported that the North American Free Trade Agreement was signed by President Bill Clinton. The story should have made clear that President George H. W. Bush initially signed the treaty with Mexico and Canada in December 1992 before leaving office. Clinton signed legislation enacting the trade agreement a year later, after it was ratified by the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1993. The treaty took effect under Clinton in 1994.
