On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton was honored at the annual Stephen Weiss Apple Awards in New York City. She spoke briefly at the event thanking designer Donna Karen. Clinton’s speech was primarily focused on the award ceremony, but she did speak about the importance of continuing in the event of a setback. She said, “It’s easy to be grateful when things go your way, but when things don’t, how you find the resilience in the face of setbacks, how you call on the inner strength that you search for—how you stick with it, well gratitude is one of the ways you can make that happen. To have the gratitude and the inspiration that you need.” A video from the event will be added when/if available.

On Friday, Tim Kaine and Chelsea Clinton remained on the campaign trail as Hillary Clinton prepares for Monday night’s debate. In Houston, Texas, Kaine spoke at a rally at a local union hall where he spoke about Hillary’s plans and the importance of Texas in November’s election. “We look at what you’re doing … and we’re very, very proud of it. We can feel the spirit, the energy. We can see a state that has been red, a state moving in the best direction,” he said. Following his speech, Kaine continued to a series of fundraisers in Austin, but he held a surprise press appearance with about 40 Hispanic Texas officials who announced their endorsement of Hillary and Kaine. Videos from the rally and conference are below.
Chelsea Clinton spent the day in Flint, Michigan where she began with a news conference with Flint Mayor Karen Weaver and Representative Dan Kildee.
