WASHINGTON (AP) — The Clinton trust campaign is turning to powerful advocates, chief among them President Barack Obama, to vouch for the Democratic candidate shadowed by an FBI investigation on the brink of her presidential nomination.
Clinton herself acknowledges that she has “work to do” to earn the trust of voters after nearly four decades in public life as she faces Republican Donald Trump in the general election.
And she’s called in help from advocates to attest to what Sen. Elizabeth Warren calls her “good heart.”
On Tuesday, Obama is set to join Clinton in a campaign event in battleground North Carolina meant to personalize the “I trust Hillary” theme.
“Trust” is on the lips of Democrats because it’s a remarkable vulnerability that persists for Clinton.
