GOP Delegates: Bashing Clinton Can't Be Only Trump Strategy

Election 2016

Illinois delegates to the Republican National Convention say Donald Trump's campaign can't rely on demonizing his Democratic opponent to win the White House.

Prairie State Republicans say they want the convention to end Thursday with a pro-GOP theme after harsh rhetoric aimed at the presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie criticized Clinton in a convention speech Tuesday. Former Trump rival Ben Carson compared the ex-secretary of state to Lucifer.

Pat Brady of St. Charles wants to hear how Republicans can run the government better. He says "we've already won the argument that Hillary's a liar."

State Rep. John Cabello from Machesney Park says bashing Clinton won't hurt Trump because women he would alienate already oppose him. 

A Clinton spokeswoman did not immediately respond with comment.
