Contrasting Campaign Strategies Show Clinton’s Advantage

Clinton campaign officials told the Times that Obama’s “visits are likely to be concentrated in Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Nevada and Iowa” — exactly what the president should be doing to help Clinton get out the vote in November. Your move, Mr. Trump.
