Bracing for a general election fight with Donald Trump, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton and her allies are putting resources into industrial states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania to try to block Trump from making inroads with working-class voters there.The desire to stop the presumptive Republican presidential nominee from wresting away the support of unionized workers has even led a group organized to back Bernie Sanders, Labor for Bernie, to consider its next steps if Sanders does not win the Democratic nomination.Trump has aggressively courted working-class voters ahead of the Nov. 8 election to succeed Democratic President Barack Obama.Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told Reuters the campaign was targeting industrial states like Pennsylvania and Michigan, which have voted Democratic in presidential elections since 1992 .Tom Buffenbarger, a Clinton surrogate to labor and the past president of the machinists' union, said Democrats would have "a lot of fun" highlighting Trump's inconsistencies, although he acknowledged the Republican candidate presented a threat in some Rust Belt states.
