Travels of Hillary Clinton—October 2016

Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton  |  U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine  ||  Donald Trump  |  Gov. Mike Pence  ||  Former Gov. Gary Johnson  ||  Jill Stein

Milestones on the calendar were the debates in St. Louis on October 9 and Las Vegas on October 19, and Clinton emerged from these encounters well positioned for the final stretch.  Through the final debate Clinton had a relatively light schedule of public events, but she picked up the pace to close the month.  In particular in the days leading up to the final debate Clinton was noticeably absent from the campaign trail, while Trump continued to do rallies.  The day after the St. Louis debate, Clinton drew a crowd of 18,500 people to her rally at The Ohio State University, making it the largest of the campaign thus far.  On October 25 Clinton did her final fundraiser, according to CNN's Dan Merica her 371st of the campaign.  As the campaign wound to a close Clinton hit battleground states, doing a couple of events a day, sometimes featuring notable figures from the political or entertainment worlds (Elizabeth Warren, Michelle Obama, Gabby Giffords, Jennifer Lopez).  She also fit in a handful unannounced appearances, notably in African American neighborhoods.
