AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is returning northeast Ohio for another campaign rally.

The Monday night rally at the University of Akron marks Trump’s first visit to Akron during the campaign. He was nominated at the GOP convention in Cleveland and made a campaign stop last week in Youngstown, another northeast Ohio city.

GOP officials insist presidential nominee Donald Trump is finally hitting his stride and will catch up with Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Polls now mostly show Trump lagging Clinton by 5 percentage points or more nationally.

Clinton campaign officials have dismissed the idea of a changed Trump as nonsense.
