WARREN, Mich.: Hillary Clinton has landed on a very personal counterpunch to what she says is Donald Trump's checkered business past: her dad.As the Democratic presidential nominee works to undercut Trump's economic record and promote her plans for small businesses, she is invoking memories of her late father's Chicago drapery business. Clinton hopes to remind voters that despite her years in public life that have left her a multimillionaire, she comes from a middle-class background and understands the life of a small-business owner.Clinton has been pitching her plans to support small businesses and to make it easier to start a company.While Clinton has spoken of her father throughout the campaign, the recent recollections have been more detailed and intimate. Mo Elleithee, who worked for Clinton's 2008 presidential bid, said that reminiscing about her family's business could put Clinton "in a different light" with voters. Still, Republican Rick Tyler, who served as an adviser to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential bid, said Clinton's family-focused hit on Trump was effective.
