Politico's Maggie Haberman has the scoop on presidential candidate-in-waiting Hillary Clinton's fall campaign schedule, which includes a trip to Georgia on behalf of Democrat Michelle Nunn.
In recent weeks, Nunn has brought in former President Bill Clinton for a fundraiser and First Lady Michelle Obama for a rally and fundraiser. There are no details yet on when Hillary Clinton is coming to town.
Per Politico, Clinton will also support Democratic candidates in the key presidential states of Iowa and New Hampshire, as well as Kentucky, North Carolina, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Illinois, California and New York. Some more background on the calculations:
Her primary concern is the Senate, where she served for eight years and where she wants to help her colleagues retain the majority. To that end, she's added another fundraiser to her list to help the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, hosted by movie mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg, in California on Oct. 20.
But she also wants to focus surgically on targets where she can be as helpful as possible, meaning races where committee data and polling has shown she is a maximum draw, her aides said. Abedin has worked closely with Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee executive director Guy Cecil, who worked on Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, over many months to determine where Clinton would be most effective.
