It was another wild week on the 2016 campaign trail. In a shake-up of campaign leadership this week, Donald Trump brought on Breitbart News’ Steve Bannon as the campaign’s chief executive and promoted pollster Kellyanne Conway to campaign manager. Then on Friday, Paul Manafort resigned from the Trump campaign.
We’ll hear from Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who was the first sitting Senator to endorse Trump in February. We’ll ask the senator what this shake-up means for the campaign and what was behind the decision to bring in new leadership. We’ll also talk about Donald Trump’s recent comments, including his regret for campaign conduct that may have offended voters.
We’ll also speak to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus about the latest Trump campaign reset. What does this mean for the campaign as we approach November? With the election less than three months away, will we see a “new” Donald Trump in the final stretch of the campaign?
Hillary Clinton’s campaign hopes to gain support in key battleground states as Trump’s troubles continue. We’ll talk to Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook about how the campaign plans to maintain momentum going into the fall.
We’ll also have the results of a new Battleground tracker poll focused on Iowa and Ohio. CBS News Elections Director Anthony Salvanto will be in studio to break down the numbers and explain what this means for the 2016 race.
In a new biography out next week Washington Post investigative reporter Michael Kranish and editor Marc Fisher led a team that dove deep into Donald Trump’s past to provide a full picture of the GOP nominee. We’ll ask the authors of “Trump Revealed” what they learned about the candidate through interviews with Donald Trump himself and examinations of the billionaire’s business dealings.
We’ll also have excerpts from a CBS News Contributor Frank Luntz-led focus group of Pennsylvania voters who once supported Donald Trump. Why did they turn on him and can he regain their support?
This week’s political panel will break down the week in politics. Tune in to hear from Vox.com founder Ezra Klein, The Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter, Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs and The Federalist’s Ben Domenech.
