Trump’s money machine, Clinton & Trump campaign styles, and “Stop Trump” standstill

On the Webcast, The Wall Street Journal’s Jeanne Cummings explains Donald Trump’s fundraising machine for the general election. With his agreement with the RNC, he won’t be able to control where most of the money goes. Plus, TIME’s Michael Scherer explains the differences between the Clinton and Trump campaign organizations. Clinton has a staff of around 800, while Trump has a considerably smaller staff that allows him more maneuverability. The Washington Post’s Ed O’Keefe says the “Stop Trump” people have mostly moved into “unenthusiastic acceptance of inevitability” and that most of the party reforms focus on changes for future elections. And Real Clear Politics’ Alexis Simendinger discusses whether Clinton’s many years in the public eye have hurt her campaign. One voter she talked to says she’s “not unhappy” with Clinton, but her political baggage is unsettling.
