Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign plans to suspend its TV ads in Virginia next week, suggesting the former secretary of state is confident in where she currently stands against her Republican opponent, Donald Trump.
The decision to halt advertising in the Old Dominion comes two weeks after Clinton tapped Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine to join her on the Democratic presidential ticket. Recent polls show Virginia voters affording Kaine, who previously served as governor, a positive approval rating of 52 percent.
While no polling has come out of Virginia since both parties held their national conventions, Clinton carried an 8-point lead over Trump in a Fox News survey taken in mid-July. The former secretary of state has also dominated Trump in several national polls released this week and last.
Clinton's campaign recently pulled its ads in Colorado as well, after state-level polls showed her performing better against Trump at this point in the race than President Obama had in his 2012 re-election bid against Mitt Romney. She spent Wednesday campaigning in the Centennial State.
Still, the Democratic presidential hopeful and her allies have continued to significantly outspend Trump on paid advertising. NBC News reported Tuesday that pro-Clinton forces intend to spend approximately $98 million in TV ads through the November election, while groups backing Trump have dropped around $1 million to date.
The Clinton campaign did not return the Washington Examiner's request for comment.
