ABC News reports:
The Democratic National Committee will begin to pour millions of dollars into six battleground states — Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina and Arizona — in preparation for a general election fight against President Donald Trump, the committee announced Wednesday.
The spending — the first multi-million dollar installment in what the party is calling “The Battleground Build Up 2020” — represents the initial wave in the DNC’s election year battleground spending and signals the states that Democrats believe will be most competitive with Trump on the ballot in November.
Trump won all of the states on the DNC’s list, meaning the committee will not, for the time being, deploy money to potentially competitive blue states like New Hampshire, Minnesota and Nevada as part of the program. The list also doesn’t include Ohio and Iowa, two states that supported Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and then backed Trump in 2016.
