Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced Tuesday that they will be launching six-figure ad buys in New Mexico and Michigan, traditionally-blue states that Donald Trump has visited recently and said he will win.

The Associated Press reported the six-figure ad buys in Colorado, Virginia, Michigan, and New Mexico aimed at getting out the vote. Priorities USA, the main super PAC supporting Clinton, also announced a seven-figure ad buy in Michigan.

Trump visited New Mexico on Sunday and pledged to win the state. The Republican nominee also visited Michigan Monday and said about the state, “I say let’s go win it.”

The Trump campaign on Tuesday said they will be launching a $25 million ad buy in several battleground and blue states: Florida, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Maine, New Mexico, Ohio, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Nevada, Virginia, and New Hampshire.

Clinton is currently up in polling averages in both Michigan and New Mexico. It should be noted Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won Michigan in the Democratic primaries. Many polls leading up to that election had Clinton up by at last 20 percent.
