Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made an unusual foray Saturday night into deep-blue Connecticut, pledging to make "a big play" for the Democratic stronghold.Connecticut has not voted for a Republican in a presidential election since 1988, when it went for George H.W. Bush, but Trump was undeterred. The wealthy southern coast of Connecticut, made up of tony New York City suburbs, has long been fertile fundraising ground and Trump held an event nearby before the rally.Trump has repeatedly suggested that he will compete in traditionally Democratic states, vowing to commit time and energy to places like California and his home state of New York. However, his efforts before the Connecticut rally have been minimal: He made one appearance in Maine, cancelled a rally in upstate New York and has largely restricted his campaigning to traditional battleground states like Ohio, Florida and Virginia.
