Donald Trump's presidential campaign is not pulling out of Virginia despite reports that said it was abandoning the Old Dominion State.
The chairman of Trump's Virginia campaign told The Washington Post Thursday the Republican presidential nominee is still very much trying to win the battleground state. The campaign recently moved some of its resources to North Carolina but that was temporary.
"All campaigns move resources around," John Fredericks told the Post. "I'll confirm that the Trump bus in Virginia went to North Carolina for several days . . . You would have to be an idiot not to do that. You drive down 95, you hit the state [line] . . . It's temporary. They're coming back."
NBC News reported early Thursday that Trump was abandoning ship in Virginia, citing sources within the campaign. Fredericks, who does a conservative radio show in the mornings, told the Post in a text message the NBC story was false.
"Not True! Totally False! Bogus! Planted to dispirit our tens of thousands of volunteers in Virginia," Fredericks said. "I confirmed this with Trump family at 5:00 a.m."
The latest RealClearPolitics polling average shows Democrat Hillary Clinton with a 7.5-point lead in Virginia.
