Trump, Clinton Set Sights On Swing States Ahead Of Election Day

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are pounding the pavement in some key swing states this weekend, as the race for the White House enters its final stretch.

Trump visited the Civil War battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on Saturday, after laying out his goals for his first 100 days as president, CBS2's Magdalena Doris reported.


"We will drain the swamp in Washington DC," he said to his supporters.

The Republican outlined more than two dozen proposals, calling for term limits for Congress, a hiring freeze for most of the federal government, tax cuts for businesses and the middle class, and legislation to fund a wall on the southern border.

"With the full understanding that the country of Mexico will be reimbursing the Unites States for the full cost of such a wall," Trump said.

Before his speech, an 11th woman came forward accusing the GOP candidate of unwanted sexual advances. Adult film performer Jessica Drake said Saturday that Trump kissed her without consent and later propositioned her.

"Donald then asked me, 'What do you want? How much?'" Drake said.

The Trump campaign called the story totally false and ridiculous.

"All of these liars will be sued after the election is over," Trump said."It was probably the DNC and the Clinton campaign that put forwards these liars with their fabricated stories."

At a rally in Pittsburgh, Clinton tried to tie the state's Republican senate candidate, Pat Toomey, to Trump's controversial statements.

"If he doesn't have the courage to stand up to Donald Trump after all this, then can you be sure he'll stand up for you when it counts?" she said.

Clinton also continued to dodge questions about controversy surrounding emails released by hackers and Wikileaks.

"I think we should all be concerned about what the Russian are trying to do to our election and using Wikileaks very blatantly to try to influence the outcome of the election," Clinton said.

The latest CBS battleground tracker shows Clinton leading Trump to secure more than 270 electoral college votes needed to win.

Clinton will be campaigning in North Carolina on Sunday.
