TEXAS IS THE SWING STATE:

Trump campaign going dark in Arizona, cancels planned TV blitz (Jim Small -September 4, 2020, AZ Mirror)

Donald Trump's re-election campaign is going off Arizona airwaves after the Labor Day holiday, and may not resume television advertising in the Grand Canyon State until early voting begins in early October.

On Thursday, records filed with the Federal Communications Commission by Phoenix-area television stations showed that the Trump campaign cancelled all of its ads between Sept. 8 and Sept. 14. The air time totaled approximately $580,000 in the Phoenix media market, which includes most of the state except for the areas surrounding Tucson and Yuma.

A campaign spokeswoman confirmed Trump was suddenly going dark in a state where he has consistently trailed Democratic challenger Joe Biden in the polls -- a state that has only voted for a Democratic presidential candidate once since 1948.

He's already lost the election; it's just a matter of trying to hold onto enough red states to not look like McGovern or Dukakis.
