WASHINGTON (AP) – Hillary Clinton’s campaign is launching a major voter mobilization drive during the Republican National Convention.
Campaign officials say the presumptive Democratic nominee is setting a national goal of persuading more than 3 million people to register and commit to vote in the 2016 election.
Clinton intends to announce the plan on Monday in a speech to the NAACP convention in Cincinnati, followed by a stop at an Ohio voter registration event with volunteers.
She is kicking off the voter drive as Republicans meet in Cleveland to nominate businessman Donald Trump at their national convention.
The mobilization effort aims to capture the energy of Democrats watching the GOP convention from home each evening and harness it into a stronger voter base.
