WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton is pushing her supporters to cast early ballots in battleground states, as Donald Trump tries to make up ground with intensified attacks following the FBI’s renewed examination of her email practices.
As her national lead shrinks in the final week of the race, Clinton is relying on a firewall of support from women and minority voters in demographically diverse swing states. On Tuesday in rallies across Florida, she plans to hit hard at the treatment of women by Trump, who has been accused of repeatedly sexually harassing and even assaulting them.
She will be introduced by Alicia Machado, the winner of Trump’s 1996 Miss Universe crown whom he has repeatedly insulted for her weight gain.
With more than 23 million ballots already cast through early voting, it’s unclear whether Trump has the time or organizational capacity to improve his standing enough over the next week to win the White House.
