The Hillary Clinton Campaign on Wednesday said rival Donald Trump’s camp might be regretting that they did not “compete harder” particularly with regards to the grounds game. “I think Donald Trump’s campaign might be regretting that they didn’t compete harder, I would argue, around the country by building a ground game like Hillary decided to,” the Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook told MSNBC in an interview.

He also noted that the Republican nominee is competing harder in a state like Michigan. “I’m actually really proud that we were organizing in Michigan back in the primary and we never let up. So we’ve had a big team on the ground there. We registered over 100,000 new voters there. We’ve been working aggressively for months,” Mook said.

“You know, we weren’t necessarily talking about it in the press, but we’ve had a concerted effort and we’re seeing, again, in Michigan, as well, very good turnout in our core communities there,” he said. The Trump Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway also gave an interview to MSNBC, saying they did not have the full support of the Republican infrastructure.

“The things that would worry me, I guess just that we didn’t have the full support of the Republican infrastructure,” she said. Exuding confidence that Clinton would win the presidential elections, Mook said she has multiple paths to victory, which is not a luxury with the Trump Campaign.

“One of the luxuries that our campaign has right now is that so many states are in play that we have many, many paths to victory. Donald Trump has to win Ohio. He has to win Pennsylvania. He has to win Florida.

“We have a variety of different places to go. I’d say Ohio is one of the tougher states for us. But I think it will remain a battleground for a long time to come,” Mook said.
