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)
