Clinton, Trump duel in must-win states in a tightening race


RALEIGH: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump squared off Thursday in do-or-die North Carolina with duelling rallies in the home stretch of a bitter, hard-fought US presidential race that is tightening by the day. As the candidates jostle and joust for supremacy in the handful of battleground states that will decide the November 8 election, two of the biggest prizes on the electoral map, Florida and North Carolina, have narrowed into absolute dead heats, according to RealClearPolitics poll aggregates. Democrat Clinton unleashed top surrogates including President Barack Obama to bolster her case in the election’s homestretch, while billionaire Trump deployed wife Melania to soften the brash Republican’s image. North Carolina was suddenly in the eye of the political storm, with the candidates frantically criss-crossing the southeastern state where they are locked at 46.4 percent apiece.
