Hillary Clinton to form “Republicans for Hillary” group to exploit furore over Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton is to assemble a “Republicans for Hillary” group as she seeks to exploit GOP disarray over Donald Trump’s nomination as the party’s presidential candidate.

The move is part of a sharp tack to the Right planned by Mrs Clinton’s campaign after being forced to adopt a Left-wing posture by Bernie Sanders’ populist challenge for the Democratic party’s nomination.

It will involve wooing wealthy Republican donors alienated by the prospect of Mr Trump as the party’s standard bearer in November’s poll, according to the New York Times.
