Hillary Clinton's campaign will work to regain its footing by putting the spotlight on national security after a rough week of headlines about the FBI investigation into her email and big-dollar fundraisers in the playgrounds of the country’s elite.
Polls consistently show voters anxious about how Donald Trump’s temperament would fit with the role of commander in chief. Trump’s loose talk about nuclear weapons and his disparagement of military leaders have prompted dozens of top Republican national security experts to warn voters off of him.
On Tuesday, the Clinton campaign will seek to exploit that weakness with a major national security address by running mate Tim Kaine in Wilmington, N.C. The address will highlight Kaine’s credentials as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Senate Foreign Relations Committee. According to the campaign, Kaine “will underline that Hillary Clinton is the only candidate who has the experience, temperament, and judgment to serve as commander in chief.”
