The summer presidential campaign kicked off with a striking fundraising gap between the two presumptive nominees -- not only does Hillary Clinton lead Donald Trump in national polls, but she has raised over $40 million more. For a closer look at Trump’s finances and what they could mean for his chances in November, Gwen Ifill talks to Matea Gold of The Washington Post and Susan Page of USA Today.
The Hillary Clinton campaign has begun checking into the positions, backgrounds and financial dealings of at least three potential vice presidential candidates: HUD Secretary Julián Castro, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Timothy M. Kaine.
Hillary Clinton has officially started her search for a running mate, and no potential candidate has evoked more speculation, and, depending on who is asked, wistfulness or dread, than Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.
Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report and Tamara Keith of NPR join Gwen Ifill to discuss the latest in politics, including what Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski’s ousting means for the presumptive GOP nominee, Trump’s unconventional June advertising strategy, Hillary Clinton’s $23 million swing state blitz and whether mainstream Republicans will try to dump Trump at the RNC.

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump loaned his campaign $2.2 million in May and collected $3.1 million in donations, ending the month with less than $1.3 million in the bank, according to new campaign finance filings.
Hillary Clinton's search for a running mate is moving into a more intense phase, according to several Democrats, as aides contact a pared-down pool of candidates to ask for reams of personal information and set up interviews with the presumptive Democratic nominee's vetting team.
