In only the second day on the general campaign trail, Clinton-Kaine are already cancelling appearances in key battleground states.
CLEVELAND – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine will no longer be visiting Cleveland on Sunday.
Clinton’s campaign tells Fox 8 that the event was canceled due to time constraints. The pair will still be stopping in Youngstown on Saturday night before heading to Columbus on Sunday.
The event cancelled was originally billed as: “Cleveland Manufacturing Event” scheduled for: 12:00 p.m. EDT, Sunday, July 31 Where: APOC (A Piece of Cleveland), 1310 E 49th Street, Cleveland, OH 44114
Yesterday, in Johnstown Pennsylvania the Clinton-Kaine rally could only attract a few dozen, heavily vetted/controlled, supporters. The Clinton-Kaine campaign have kicked off their general election efforts by traveling via buses through Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Some, given the history of how the Clinton campaign deliver misleading information, may speculate the Cleveland cancellations was due to lack of interest, ie. bad optics. Perhaps this is a possibility.
However, there’s a very solid argument to be made that Hillary Clinton is not physically healthy enough for the rigors of general election campaigning. It is entirely possible the decision to use large buses for travel is more attached to her health condition.
Time will tell.
