'Women for Trump' Ohio tour kicks off

The Donald Trump campaign is kicking off a three-day outreach effort to Ohio women and African Americans in Cincinnati on Friday.

The tour will feature:

Lara Trump, an associated producer at "Inside Edition" at CBS and wife of Trump's son Eric;
Omarosa Manigault, Trump's director of African-American outreach and a villain/star of Trump's reality show, "Apprentice;"
Diamond and Silk, YouTube personalities and sisters Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, who were early Trump backers;
Lynne Patton, Eric Trump Foundation vice president and a senior assistant to all three Donald Trump children.
The group will speak at the panel question-and-answer session at the Republican Women of Cincinnati breakfast at the Hall of Mirrors room in the Hilton Netherlands Plaza hotel, starting at 7:15 a.m.

Trump spokesman Katrina Pierson, known for her flamethrowing defense of the Republican presidential candidate in appearances on cable news shows, will lead the panel.

Trump consistently polls poorly among women and African Americans, and any additional support he could garner in Ohio could be crucial to a victory in the quintessential swing state. Democratic foe Hillary Clinton is beating Trump in Ohio by 3 points in the latest Real Clear Politics average of head-to-head polls.

The tour will "discuss why women should support Donald Trump for President, and to spread his message of inclusion for all Americans," according to a Thursday morning news release from the campaign. The group will "tour the state" Friday through Sunday, it said.

No other stops were announced, though Lara Trump is scheduled to speak to the Richland County Republican Women in Mansfield on Saturday.
