With Trump now in the lead in North Carolina, you'd think the last thing Hillary Clinton would be doing is canceling a lucrative and badly needed appearance in the Tarheel State.
But CBS reported that Clinton campaign officials said that a Tuesday fundraiser in the Democrat college town enclave of Chapel Hill was 'postponed' indefinitely, without any reason being given.
The fundraiser was billed as “lunch with Hillary Rodham Clinton” and had four donation' levels for attendees. They ranged from $100,000, which featured “chair reception with Hillary,” $33,000, which included a “host reception with Hillary,” $5,000, which included “preferred seating” and $2,700...which, I suppose, allowed you to have her used napkins or something as a keepsake of the happy event.
You'd think the lure of cash would have revived her, but apparently not.
North Carolina isn't just a battleground state with a close race according to the polls. This comes at a time when Donald Trump is surging and Mrs. Clinton badly needed to make an appearance to quell rumors about her failing health that now are looking more like reality. Here she is just two days ago...
trump's Tweet? "Hillary Clinton is taking the day off again, she needs the rest. Sleep well Hillary - see you at the debate!"
Whatever the reason, Trump took full advantage of Hillary's absence. He did events in Kenansville, a small Eastern North Carolina town at the Duplin County Event Center that drew at least 10,000 people...
And followed up with a similar sized rally in High Point:

Looks like a lot of people in North Carolina wanted to hear what he had to say, as opposed to a handful of elites at a fundraiser interested in buying access to a corrupt shill.
