In campaign homestretch, Trump and Clinton turn up heat in swing states

  |   World News

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton kept up their focus on a handful of critical swing states Monday, enlisting the help of allies in hopes of gaining any edge with voters in the final two weeks of the presidential campaign. Trump, the Republican nominee, will devote the day to crisscrossing Florida — a state his aides say he must win to keep alive his White House bid — with stops in St. Augustine and Tampa. Meanwhile, Clinton, the Democratic nominee, will stump in New Hampshire with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D), from neighboring Massachusetts. But in a sign of how Democrats are hoping to capi­tal­ize on Trump’s declining poll numbers, Clinton and her backers — including President Obama — are devoting as much time to lifting up candidates lower on the ballot as they are to the presidential contest.
