Clinton stumps for working-class votes

  |   World News

On the second day of their bus tour through Pennsylvania and Ohio, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.), moved deep into potential Donald Trump country. The pair toured an advanced manufacturing plant in the rural, white countryside of central-western Pennsylvania and were holding rallies in Pittsburgh and in Youngstown, Ohio. The bus trip is meant to highlight Clinton’s pledge to add new jobs, raise wages and promote homegrown manufacturing. All three are issues of acute concern to middle- and working-class voters, many of whom are white and increasingly are accustomed to voting Republican — a trend that Trump is counting on in his bid to reach the White House.
