In response, Clinton canceled a campaign fundraiser in the state yesterday.
If there was a time Hillary needed to make a public appearance in the key battleground state of North Carolina to drum up voter support, it was today, if for no other reason than an Elon University poll finding Trump now has a 44% advantage among likely voters in the Tar Heel State, with 43% going to Clinton.
Which is why we find it surprising that with Hillary’s desperately needing to make an appearance, overnight CBS reported that Clinton campaign officials said that a Tuesday fundraiser in Chapel Hill was postponed.
The Clinton event was billed as “lunch with Hillary Rodham Clinton” and had four donation levels to attend. Those contribution levels were described as $100,000, which featured “chair reception with Hillary,” $33,000, which included a “host reception with Hillary,” $5,000, which included “preferred seating” and $2,700.
No reason was given for postponement of the Clinton event, which was planned to take place at the home of Betty Craven and Michael Warner.
A reasonable person can conclude the cancellation was due, in part, to Clinton’s failing health. No politician cancels an opportunity to raise money, especially this close to an election. The article also notes Hillary’s “crazy eyes” – my term, not theirs – spotted during an event in Philadelphia on Monday.
Either way, none of this bodes well for the Democratic nominee.
