Presumptive Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton is putting a major focus on Virginia this month, including campaigns stops, the opening of five offices and TV ads.
Clinton was in Hampton on Wednesday to discuss national security with military families and veterans.
"I want to underscore we rely on Muslim countries to help fight terror," Clinton said. "If we can make this an American mission, not a Republican or Democratic debate, we will succeed."
Her campaign is also opening five offices across the commonwealth this week -- two in northern Virginia, one in Blacksburg, one in Richmond and one in Virginia Beach.
The Richmond location will open at 6 p.m. Thursday at 1726 Altamont Ave. with guests state Sen. Donald McEachin and state Del. Jennifer McClellan.
"Organizers and volunteers will host phone banks, organizing meetings, and canvasses from the offices as well as from supporters' homes across the region," Clinton's campaign said about the offices.
Clinton has also released two new ads that will air in several swing states, including Virginia:
Republicans were quick to respond to these ads, saying Clinton is exaggerating her role in creating a children's health insurance plan and that she's taking too much credit to end trafficking of women and children.
"Recycling debunked falsehoods about her biography won’t make voters forget that Hillary Clinton is still facing an FBI investigation into her illicit email server and that her corrupt family foundation took millions of dollars from foreign governments that oppress women and help support terrorism," said Republican National Committee spokesperson Garren Shipley.
