DES MOINES, Iowa — Hillary Clinton, the only announced Democratic presidential candidate, has come and gone from Iowa. Clinton campaigned in Iowa Tuesday and Wednesday after she announced her campaign last Sunday.
Channel 13’s “The Insiders” starts off this Sunday morning with the impact of Clinton’s Iowa Trip.
Here’s the lineup:
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on why he declined to endorse Clinton’s campaign yet (he headed her U.S. Senate campaign in New York), and why he doesn’t think the heat he got after his decision is fair.
Matt Paul, Clinton’s Iowa campaign manager, talks about why he thinks the initial Clinton trip worked, along with the unique challenges she has as a candidate this time around. He also talks about how his former boss, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, encouraged him to work for Clinton. And Paul shares what Vilsack could do next after his term in D.C. ends.
David Axelrod, one of Barack Obama’s former top advisers, weighs in on what Clinton has to overcome to be a winning candidate.
Rand Paul (no relation to Matt, we don’t think), the Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Senator from Kentucky, tells us why he isn’t thinking about the prom queen or stud high school quarterback these days.
Matt Paul comes back for the end of the show and our Insiders Quick 6. He tackles beer, food, the Iowa State Fair, and the candidate he wishes would hire him. Plus, he tells us just how bad that infamous “Dean Scream” was (Paul worked for Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign, so he was there for the scream).
