Welcome to McClatchy’s Voter Survival Guide, an interactive presentation of daily events from one of the strangest presidential campaigns in modern history.
An already ugly campaign continues to get uglier.
Hillary Clinton goes hard on Donald Trump's record
During an event Thursday afternoon, Hillary Clinton slammed Donald Trump and his ideas as "profoundly dangerous."
He’s taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over one of America’s two major political parties.
In a blistering speech, Clinton referenced a lawsuit accusing Trump of refusing to rent to black and hispanic tenants, scoffed at his initiation of the "birther" movement that asked if Barack Obama had been born in the United States and questioned his refusal to disavow former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
She also accused Trump of pushing conspiracy theories from the "alt-right" and read out the headlines of several Breitbart News stories, whose former chairman Steve Bannon now operates as the CEO of the Trump campaign.
"Just imagine Donald Trump reading that and thinking: "This is what I need more of in my campaign," she said.
Trump immediately fires back
Following the speech, the Republican nominee took to twitter to express his thoughts, accusing Clinton of "race-baiting" and "pandering to the worst instincts in our society."

Breitbart News also joined in on lambasting the speech, referencing Russian President Vladmir Putin after Clinton tried to tie Trump and his staff to Russia.
