By USA TODAY USATODAY.COM USATODEADO, N.M. (AP) With just days to go until the 2020 presidential election, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign is making moves to boost turnout in key states ahead of the November vote.
Clinton, who is in New Mexico and Utah on Wednesday, will campaign in New York City and Philadelphia.
Trump, who will appear in Utah on Friday, is scheduled to campaign in Salt Lake City on Thursday.
Both will appear Saturday at the University of Utah in Provo.
In Nevada, Democratic Gov.
Brian Sandoval on Wednesday signed a measure to expand voting rights to undocumented immigrants and their families, but has been criticized by the GOP-controlled legislature and Trump.
In Arizona, Democratic Sen. Kelli Ward said she will run for reelection against Republican Rep. Martha McSally in 2018.
In North Carolina, Democratic Rep. Geraldine Ferraro on Thursday signed legislation that would create a commission to investigate whether North Carolina’s voting laws are racially biased.
She also said she would introduce legislation to prevent Republican-led legislatures from overriding federal election laws.
The commission will meet on Dec. 12 to investigate voting laws and make recommendations to state lawmakers, including a potential federal investigation.
“I have asked Congress to help me and other people that want to do the right thing and take on the Republicans,” Ferraro said in a statement.
“We’re going to bring in bipartisan legislation to ensure that the integrity of our elections is protected and that we don’t have a Republican in office that’s going to try to undermine the very core of democracy.”
MORE said the measure would give people who are voting a voice.
“If you don’t get to vote, the only thing you can do is look at what you can accomplish,” she said.
“It’s not a right that should be taken away from you.
It’s something that you deserve.”
In Arizona and New Mexico, Trump and Democratic lawmakers are fighting a lawsuit that would make it harder for undocumented immigrants to vote.
Republicans have sought to block efforts by Democrats to expand voter access, saying it would increase voter fraud.
The lawsuit is expected to be settled in the coming weeks, but Democrats say they will push for a vote on a voter identification law if it doesn’t pass.
Trump said Thursday that he opposes the lawsuit but would be willing to meet with the challengers to win their support if they agree to change their minds.
He also promised to sign a bill that would allow people to sue the federal government if they feel it has harmed them.
Trump also said he is considering running for the U.S. Senate in 2018, though the campaign is not yet announcing a campaign.
The Arizona Senate race is expected at least partly to be decided by the Republican primary vote, though it’s unclear how many Republican voters will vote in the primary.

The Senate Republican primary will likely come down to the final votes on a pair of bills that would give judges the authority to grant stays of execution if they believe an inmate’s constitutional rights have been violated.
Both measures passed the House this year.
