Clinton, Trump launch aggressive ad campaigns
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have launched aggressive advertisement campaigns running into millions of dollars, with the two rivals virtually carpet bombing key battleground states with their election rallies a week ahead of the US presidential polls.
The advertisement blitz came as the Clinton campaign battles to contain the fallout from her latest brush with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after the agency revived questions about her use of a private email server as secretary of state.
Latest polls have shown Trump gaining in the opinion polls he trailed until before the announcement by the FBI. Trump and Clinton now are neck-and-neck in several national polls, and in such a situation, the swing states hold the key for them.
Given the schedule of Clinton and Trump, along with President Barack Obama, Ohio and Florida states have emerged as the nucleus of the November 8 presidential elections.
On the first day of the last week before the elections, Clinton addressed three rallies in Florida, while Obama campaigned for her in Ohio. Trump campaigned in Pennsylvania and will address three rallies in Florida over the next two days. Obama would hit the ground in Florida with a series of rallies until tomorrow.
The two rival campaigns have said new meetings would keep adding to their leaders' schedule even till the last minute.
