Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been touting the support of high-profile Republicans opposed to Donald Trump for weeks, but those GOP leaders have yet to actually appear for Clinton on the campaign trail.
Until Tuesday, that is.
Meg Whitman, the Hewlett-Packard executive and former California Republican nominee for governor, is set to make her battleground state debut for Clinton in Denver, beginning to answer the question of how Clinton will publicly use her aisle-crossing backers in the campaign’s homestretch.
Just days after joining Clinton for multiple stops on her latest behind-closed-doors political fundraising tour in California, Whitman will convene a breakfast with local business leaders in Colorado, according to the campaign.
It’s a safe spot to debut Clinton’s most prominent Republican surrogate. The Democrat has consistently led Trump in Colorado, a traditional swing state.
While Clinton and her campaign have looked to bring on more GOP backers of all stripes, her fundraising team has also mounted a large-scale push to win over longtime Republican donors, frequently pointing to Whitman as the prime example of their success so far.LIKE our Facebook page: SourcesNews
