Over the weekend, a Hillary Clinton campaign office in Delaware, Ohio, planned to do a canvassing event. But their busy afternoon didn’t go as well as they had hoped – the only person to attend before it was supposed to begin was there for another reason.
A man behind the camera – known as just “Eric” – walked into the Delaware Clinton headquarters, and at first everyone seemed thrilled that he was there. Two tables laid out with Clinton/Kaine signs and sign-up sheets were flanked by empty chairs.
But then he explained why he was really there…

The Clinton volunteers quickly escorted him from the building.
The fact that Clinton is struggling in Delaware, Ohio is not shocking – Republicans outnumber Democrats there three to one. But securing that area may still be hard for Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Holly Quaine, president of the Delaware Area Chamber of Commerce, explained to the Wall Street Journal:
“The inertia in Delaware County is to vote Republican. But with Trump, you have to stop and think. He’s Donald Trump—Kardashians, reality TV.”
Most of Delaware County was behind Ohio Governor John Kasich, who has continued to make things hard for Trump in Ohio since he left the presidential race several months ago.
