Elections: Brazil's Silva wants better US ties

Marina Silva, a front-running presidential candidate who grew up in the Amazon jungle and could become the first black to lead Brazil's government, said Wednesday that if elected she'll improve ties with the U.S. and strongly push for human rights in nations like Cuba. She spoke exclusively to The Associated Press in her first interview with a foreign media outlet since being thrust into Brazil's presidential campaign after her Socialist Party's original candidate died in an Aug. 13 plane crash.
