Hillary Clinton is making a campaign stop in Ohio to shore up early organizing efforts in the political battleground state.

Clinton speaks at a grassroots event Thursday in Cleveland, where Republicans held their first presidential debate earlier this month.

Clinton's working to sew up vote commitments for next year's primary and to build out her local infrastructure of volunteers. Ohio is only the second non-early primary state she's targeted with such efforts.

Her husband Bill Clinton twice won Ohio and Hillary convincingly defeated Barack Obama in the state's 2008 Democratic primary. But her campaign says it's taking nothing for granted.

Ohio Republicans say heavily Democratic Cleveland is in play next year and they've boosted their outreach there. They called Clinton a "retread candidate" whose record is "failed and tired."
