Washington - The campaign managers of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are agreeing on something: The 2016 election will be a fight to the bitter end.

Trump aide Kellyanne Conway told Fox News Sunday that she's counting on swing voters to carry key battleground states, adding that "we're not giving up. We know we can win this".

Meanwhile, Robby Mook suggested the Clinton campaign won't stop at just the needed 270 electoral votes.

While 270 is still the goal, he said, Clinton was expanding her map because traditionally red states like Arizona are now in play. He said: "We're not running away with this. This race is going to be competitive up until the end."

Mook also responded to secretly recorded video footage released by conservative activist James O'Keefe, showing a Democratic activist bragging about deploying troublemakers at rallies held by Donald Trump. Mook says it's "unacceptable" for anyone in either party to incite violence as part of a political campaign.

Mook told CNN's State of the Union that the person in the video "never had a relationship with the Clinton campaign". 

He added that the video had been edited and that the full context was unclear.

Mook called it an attempt by Trump to "distract from the real issues of this campaign".
