WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on campaign 2016 (all times Eastern):

8:00 a.m.

Hillary Clinton is traveling aboard a new Boeing 737 campaign plane for the first time this Labor Day.

Clinton was flying to events in Ohio and Illinois on Monday in a light blue-and-white campaign plane with her press corps.

The plane has Clinton’s slogan “Stronger Together” on the side and her “H” logo on the tail.

Clinton has traveled mostly by private jet during the campaign and has not held a formal news conference with journalists since December 2015 in Iowa.


3:30 a.m.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are making competing Labor Day pitches in Ohio, setting the stage for a critical month in their testy presidential campaign.

The Republican real estate mogul is joining running mate Mike Pence at a morning round-table discussion with union members in Cleveland. The Democratic nominee plans to arrive in the city for a Labor Day festival with union leaders and workers.

Trump is also expected to campaign at a fair in Youngstown, Ohio, in a nod to the state’s role as a make-or-break proving ground for Republican presidential candidates.

Labor Day has traditionally been the kickoff to the fall campaign. Both Clinton and Trump have been locked in an intense back-and-forth throughout the summer.
