Clinton Moves to Head Off Trump In Rust Belt

New York Times: “It is no accident that Mrs. Clinton’s first campaign swing of the general election will take her next week to Ohio and Pennsylvania, and that her first joint rally with Mr. Obama will be in Wisconsin. Mr. Trump has long vowed to compete in traditionally Democratic-leaning Midwestern states, viewing the Rust Belt as the cornerstone of his electoral map.”

“Given Mr. Trump’s dismal standing with Latino voters, his prospects look tenuous in traditional swing states like Colorado, Florida and Nevada. That means his most realistic path to victory runs not only through Ohio, a perennial battleground, but also through states like Michigan and Pennsylvania that have not voted Republican in a generation. If Mrs. Clinton can fortify her support in these areas, Mr. Trump’s electoral map may disintegrate.”
