Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump is setting his sights on Ohio as polls show him trading the lead with John Kasich in the governor’s home state, upping the already intense pressure on the underdog candidate to pull off a big win Tuesday — or pack it in.
Trump shook up his campaign schedule to include a rally outside Youngstown, Ohio, Monday evening. He originally had planned to be in Florida at that time, but cancelled the rally in order to schedule the stop in Ohio.
Trump clearly is feeling bullish about his chances in both states, with polls already showing him leading Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the Sunshine State by double-digits.
“If we win Ohio and Florida, we can go attack Hillary … It’s pretty much over,” Trump said at a town hall in Tampa, Fla., earlier Monday.
