Trump, Clinton campaigns battle for battleground states

(AP) - Donald Trump's campaign is acknowledging that he is trailing Hillary Clinton with just over two weeks until the election. But Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway says, "We're not giving up."



On the Sunday news shows, Conway laid out a path to the requisite 270 electoral votes that goes through make-or-break states Florida, Iowa, North Carolina and Ohio. She told "Fox News Sunday" that Trump is counting on swing voters to carry key battleground states.



Yet even as Clinton appeared to be strengthening her lead, her campaign was careful not to declare premature victory. Campaign manager Robby Mook told CNN's "State of the Union" that "We don't want to get ahead of our skis here." He said the "battleground states" where both candidates are campaigning hardest "are called that for a reason."
