Clinton makes bid for Arizona, Trump tries to keep focus

(AP) -- Hillary Clinton has swept into normally Republican Arizona, buoyed by one of the largest crowds of her campaign and exhorting supporters to help her beat GOP rival Donald Trump.

Trump, meanwhile, campaigned with rare discipline Wednesday as he sought to close his gap with Clinton before next week's election.

"'Stay on point, Donald, stay on point,'" Trump, campaigning in Florida, teasingly quoted his staff as saying. "No sidetracks, Donald. Nice and easy. Nice and easy.'"

Trump can't win the election without carrying Florida, underscoring how narrow his path to the White House is. Despite tightening polls, Clinton still has more options, which was underscored by her decision to make that late stop in Arizona, which has voted for a Republican only once since 1952.
