On Sunday, Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine spoke at a campaign rally in Miami, Florida. During his speech at Miami-Dade College, Kaine stressed the importance of voting and spoke about a number of Clinton’s platform points. He previewed tomorrow night’s debate saying that it will be interesting to see how Donald Trump reacts when he asked tough questions about his tax returns, the Trump Foundation, and Trump University. “When the lights are bright like they are now she brings the A-plus game. She’ll be very, very good tomorrow. Donald Trump’s a performer and an entertainer, I’m not taking that away from him. But he can’t get away with the 15-second thing and then walking away. … No, it’s 90 minutes, mano y mano,” he said. A video from the event will be added when/if available.
The cast of the hit show “The West Wing,” actors Richard Schiff, Allison Janney, Bradley Whitford, Dulé Hill, Joshua Malina, and Mary McCormack, continued to campaign for Clinton today with stops in Dayton and Columbus. At each of the events, the actors took turns speaking about the importance of the 2016 election and ensuring that everyone is registered to vote before Ohio’s registration deadline on October 11. Janney, a native of Dayton, said of Clinton, “I don’t think there’s in the history of presidential candidates been someone with the depth and breadth of her experience. She is ready to do this job. We have to get it done. As Ohio goes, so goes the nation.” A video from today’s events will be added when/if available.
