Donald Trump has boasted he will turn traditionally blue states red in November, claiming his campaign is "going to play heavy, as an example, in California." Trump also said his home state of New York could potentially flip for him, despite the fact that the Empire State hasn't voted for a Republican since 1984. But even as Hillary Clinton is well on her way to establishing teams in battleground states, Trump's campaign is still looking to be a rather bare-bones operation, according to sources who spoke with CNN:

In New York — Trump's home state and a blue bastion he badly wants to win — the campaign is counting on anti-Clinton sentiments upstate and efforts to pick up Democratic voters who are [feeling] dissatisfied with their own party.Carl Paladino, the campaign's co-chair in New York and the 2010 gubernatorial nominee, said they will also rely on conventional get-out-the-vote efforts and blanketing the upstate region with signs and bumper stickers."Upstate will give us a wave in this election, and my instruction from HQ is really simple. It's one word: Win," he said. "And that's what we intend to do." [CNN]
