Breaking: Hillary Partially Pulling Out Of Ohio, Sends At Least 30 Buckeye Staffers To Stop Trump's Michigan Momentum

Sources tell WMP that Hillary Clinton has pulled at least 30 staffers out of Ohio and sent them to metro Detroit in an attempt to try and mitigate Donald Trump's undeniable momentum in Michigan.

The staffers will reportedly be based out of the Livonia area but will work all across Southeast Michigan...

The New York Times reported last week that Hillary was basically done in the Buckeye state, and this move is consistent with that reporting...

"After decades as one of America’s most reliable political bellwethers, an inevitable presidential battleground that closely mirrored the mood and makeup of the country, Ohio is suddenly fading in importance this year.

Hillary Clinton has not been to the state since Labor Day, and her aides said Thursday that she would not be back until next week, after a monthlong absence, effectively acknowledging how difficult they think it will be to defeat Donald J. Trump here.

Ohio has not fallen into step with the demographic changes transforming the United States, growing older, whiter and less educated than the nation at large.

And the two parties have made strikingly different wagers about how to win the White House in this election: Mr. Trump, the Republican nominee, is relying on a demographic coalition that, while well tailored for Ohio even in the state’s Democratic strongholds, leaves him vulnerable in the more diverse parts of the country where Mrs. Clinton is spending most of her time."

Hillary returned to Michigan today for the first time in nearly 60 days...Stay tuned!

  1. Awesome! People from OhiO are so welcome in Michigan! We love the Buckheads! Oh Buckeyes.

  2. Recent polls show Clinton leading Trump in Ohio. And in Michigan. If you have evidence to prove otherwise, please share. Thanks.

  3. No evidence unless you count HRC staffers leaving OhiO.
