    In a series of recent campaign stops in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Florida, Donald Trump has taken up an old style campaign strategy, as he’s promising to create new jobs in key regions by funneling money and resources to specific road projects and local military bases in areas that will play a pivotal role in the November elections.

    Trump has long pledged to spend $1 trillion on public-private partnerships for infrastructure – new roads, bridges, sewer systems and more, arguing it’s long overdue.

    But now he’s getting specific.

    Donald Trump on Monday expanded his complaints that the news media is arrayed against his bid for the White House, as he told supporters at two stops in Florida that major polling organizations are purposefully putting out “phony” polls to obscure the strength of his bid for the White House.

    “The system is corrupt, rigged and broken,” Trump said at a rally in St. Augustine, Florida.

    “Without the media, Hillary Clinton would be nothing,” Trump said.

    Trump went so far as to equate “oversampling” in polls to voter suppression, citing an email released by Wikileaks in which Clinton aides talk about internal polling [More]

    For a third straight day, Hillary Clinton mixed her campaign jabs at Donald Trump with an effort to swing more Senate seats to her party, as Democrats try to create a broader sense of election momentum with just over two weeks until Election Day.

    And on today’s stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, Clinton was joined by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has shown no worries about taking on Trump in recent months.

    “Get this Donald,” Warren said to a crowd that was thrilled with every verbal broadside, “Nasty women are tough, nasty women are smart, and nasty women vote.”

    Even as Hillary Clinton and President Obama hit the stump this weekend for the November elections, the two of them were not only taking jabs at Donald Trump, but also focusing a lot of energy on Republicans in swing states who are running for the U.S. Senate, as Democrats try to do more than just win back the White House.

    On Saturday, Clinton skewered Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) in an unusually pointed way during two stops in Pennsylvania, mocking Toomey for being “undecided” on Trump, as she tried to tie the two together, especially on Trump’s recent comments about accepting the [More]

    With two and a half weeks left until the elections, Hillary Clinton used a pair of rallies in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia to thrust herself directly into the race for control of the Congress, as she attacked the incumbent Republican Senator running for re-election in Pennsylvania, trying to lend her help to Democratic Party efforts to take back the House and Senate.

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) has stayed on the fence about Trump, as Clinton joined other Democrats who have been trying to use that to doom his re-election bid.

    In a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Donald Trump invoked the words of Abraham Lincoln as he vowed to clean house in Washington, D.C., setting out a series of plans in an election “contract” to offer voters for the November elections.

    “If we follow these steps, we will once more have government of, by and for the people,” Trump said to cheers from his audience.

    But in classic Trump fashion, he garnered many headlines for something else on this Saturday, by using his speech to denounce women who have accused him of sexual misconduct, as he threatened lawsuits against them.

    “Every one of these [More]

    With 17 days left until Election Day, Donald Trump makes stops in three different swing states on this Saturday, reaching out to voters in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Ohio, as he looks to slow Hillary Clinton in the final weeks of the 2016 campaign

    It’s the second day of three rallies for Trump, who started his Friday in North Carolina, then held two rallies in Pennsylvania, a state where Trump has not led Clinton in the polls since one in June.

    “Believe me, this is Brexit times five, you watch, Trump said to cheers, referring to the upset vote in England several months [More]

    With the release of more emails today by Wikileaks from a top aide to Hillary Clinton, the shadowy internet group publicly hinted that it may hold even more up-to-date emails from John Podesta, as news reports indicate the original hack on Podesta occurred in the midst of the 2016 Presidential campaign, in late March of this year.

    When you dig through the Podesta emails released by Wikileaks, one notices right away that they only go to a certain point – as no emails to or from Podesta have a date that is after March 21, 2016.

    I noted that date this morning [More]

    A night after they delivered broadsides galore against each other in a final debate, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had the opportunity to deliver some good natured campaign barbs at each other at a historic New York dinner, but instead after a few funny lines, their speeches veered off course, resulting in some awkward moments, broadcast live on television.

    Trump started off his remarks at this Catholic charity event in New York by poking some fun at himself, telling the audience that “modesty is my best quality” – then he moved on to Clinton, noting that the 1,000 people in attendance [More]

    From Las Vegas, Nevada –

    With the final debate behind them, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump moved out on the campaign trail Thursday, with a little more than two and a half weeks left in their marathon quest to win the White House.

    Clinton and her campaign staff left here feeling upbeat about the third and last debate, and her standing in the polls, while Trump aides defiantly said they stand a very good chance to win.

    “I think they saw a strong leader in Donald Trump,” said Trump spokesman Jason Miller said of the voters who watched the third Trump-Clinton debate.
