Hillary Is Missing From The Campaign Trail
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will only hold five rallies in September and doesn’t have one scheduled for the foreseeable future, as she relies on surrogates to do her campaigning.
Her running mate Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, her husband former President Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Kaine’s wife Anne Holton will all hold more public events in September than Hillary. First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will all have campaigned for Hillary as well in September.
Clinton has cancelled several events in September – a rally in Las Vegas that her husband ended up hosting, and multiple fundraisers. Hillary postponed a fundraiser in North Carolina Tuesday for unknown reasons. The donations needed to attend the North Carolina fundraiser were to go from $2,700 to $100,000.
A look at Clinton’s current calendar from now until October 19 shows that Clinton will host no rallies and will be at one fundraiser in Washington D.C. Michelle Obama, Chelsea Clinton, and Kaine are all scheduled to host more rallies than Hillary.
On the other hand, Republican nominee Donald Trump has been very active on the campaign trail in September. He has held 15 rallies so far this month and has three more scheduled. Trump has also spoken at black churches and the New York Economic Club.
The GOP nominee tweeted Tuesday about Clinton’s disappearance from the campaign trail. “Hillary Clinton is taking the day off again, she needs the rest,” Trump said. “Sleep well Hillary – see you at the debate!
