While former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) had made campaigning in the traditional battleground state of Ohio a top priority, real estate mogul Donald Trump (R) is taking a less traditional route.
“But Trump’s strategy relies on successfully navigating one of two increasingly improbable paths. California and his native New York, the two largest and most reliable Democratic states, are fools’ errands. Yet Trump seems fixated on them both in ways that defy good political sense. A clean sweep of the Rust Belt, including Ohio, is more realistic. Yet Trump is poorly organized in this region — he’s not particularly well organized anywhere — and hasn’t visited the Buckeye State since March. Conversely, Clinton’s stop Tuesday will be her second in eight days.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
