Hillary Clinton's campaign is spending ad money in traditionally-safe Democratic states as the presidential race tightens up, but her camp is saying the financial push is not in response to the FBI's announcement last Friday that it would review its investigation into how the Democratic presidential nominee handled classified material.

"The Trump campaign claims their path to (the) White House is through states like these, but we're going to make sure those doors remain shut," said Clinton spokesman Jesse Ferguson, according to a report in The Hill.

"Fueled by record breaking fundraising in the last 72 hours, we are supercharging our GOTV program with these ads to make sure voters know the urgency and the stakes of voting on November 8th."

The six-figure ad buys were made in Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico and Michigan following an influx of $11.3 million in donations over the last three days, the Hill reports.

According to the RealClearPolitics polling average, Clinton is ahead by four percentage points in Virginia in an Emerson poll and by six in a Washington Post poll. She's ahead by one in Colorado, five in New Mexico and six in Michigan.

Republican nominee Donald Trump is also pumping up spending in Democratic leaning and battleground states and will spend $25 million heading into the final week, according to CNBC.
