Con­fi­dent Clin­ton ex­pand­ing her cam­paign into ‘red’ states

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION+WORLD -

Hil­lary Clin­ton is ad­vanc­ing into states the Democrats haven’t won in decades, con­fi­dently ex­pand­ing her of­fen­sive against Don­ald Trump and aim­ing to help her party win back con­trol of Congress.

There’s a new $2 mil­lion push in Ari­zona, aides said Mon­day, in­clud­ing a cam­paign stop in Phoenix by first lady Michelle Obama. An ad­di­tional $1 mil­lion is go­ing into ef­forts in Mis­souri and In­di­ana, both states with com­pet­i­tive Se­nate races, a small amount of TV time is be­ing bought in Texas and me­dia ap­pear­ances are sched­uled in Utah.

Clin­ton’s team be­lieves that a wide pres­i­den­tial mar­gin of vic­tory would help end Trump’s po­lit­i­cal move­ment and un­der­mine his in­ten­si­fy­ing claims that the elec­tion is rigged.

On the other side, Trump’s cam­paign an­nounced plans to launch a $2 mil­lion ad­ver­tis­ing blitz in Vir­ginia, even as polls show him trail­ing Clin­ton there by a sig­nif­i­cant mar­gin.
