Clinton to campaign in Cleveland on heels of Trump stop

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Hillary Clinton will be in Cleveland on Wednesday to compare elements of her economic and tax agenda to that of Republican rival Donald Trump.

The Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign says Clinton will have a 1:15 p.m. rally at John Marshall High School. She plans to tour the school before that.

Trump was in northeast Ohio on Monday. He called for a new ideological test for admission to the United States, vetting applicants on their stance on issues like religious freedom, gender equality and gay rights. The policy would represent a significant shift in how the U.S. manages entry into the country.

Clinton edged Trump 49 percent to 45 percent in Ohio in a Quinnipiac (KWIHN’-ih-pee-ak) University poll released last week. The margin-of-error was plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
