GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Newly emboldened, Donald Trump is campaigning in traditionally Democratic states after the recent discovery of more emails that may be relevant to the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private system.
Clinton, now on defense, is trying to shift the election back to a referendum on Trump’s credentials and temperament, as she enters the final full week of the presidential race.
Clinton, who was to campaign Monday across Ohio, vowed over the weekend that she would not be “knocked off course” in the election’s final days by the discovery of new emails in an unrelated sexting investigation. It is unclear what is contained in the emails or if any of them were sent or received by Clinton herself.
Aides said she would use a speech at Kent State University to cast Trump as unfit to be commander in chief and dangerous to national security. Her team released a nuclear-war ad, titled “Daisy 2.0,” that aims to revisit a 1964 ad against GOP nominee Barry Goldwater.
