Report: Hillary Clinton's campaign will be focusing on these key states

Hillary Clinton's campaign will be focusing its "Get out the vote" firepower on several key states with minority populations ahead of November's general election, according to Reuters, which cited a memo sent to supporters.

The memo, written by Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, said Reuters, zeroed in on at least six states: Colorado, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia.

"If we fail to turn out African-American voters in Ohio, North Carolina or Virginia, we will lose. If we fail to turn out Hispanic voters in Florida, Colorado or Nevada, we will lose," Mook reportedly wrote, proposing that the campaign would be engaged in the "most aggressive Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) program in history."

"If we fail to turn out Asian-American and Pacific Islander voters in Nevada or Virginia, we will lose. Plain and simple," the memo read.

Clinton's support among minority voters nationally -- and in battleground states like those the campaign named -- far surpasses that of her rival, Donald Trump.

Mook also set ambitious fundraising benchmarks the the months leading up to November 8, the date of the general election. The campaign goal was to raise $4 million per day -- about half a billion dollars more for the Clinton war chest.

Clinton's campaign entered the month of July with more than $44 million of cash on hand, after raising about $40.5 million directly for the Hillary for America fund in June.
