Republicans like Hugh Hewitt are now worried that the new group of emails have nothing whatsoever to do with Secretary of State Clinton, and thus she may receive exoneration. After all, Trump has already called Comey a hero, (unlike John McCain who, according to the draft-dodger, was not a hero because he was captured).
I waited a day to assess how the debate was analyzed by news accounts and pundits, and while there was a huge plurality in favor of Hillary's performance there were still the same old attempts to build Donald Trump up and give him credit for retracting stuff he said when no such credit should be acknowledged.
I conducted the following interview yesterday, before the convention actually started. Denise Merrill is a Connecticut delegate (although not, as she pointed out to me, a superdelegate) and serves Connecticut as their Secretary of State. A recent achievement was the state becoming the first to pass a campaign finance reform law which created a public financing system for elections -- all the other states with such laws created them through ballot initiatives or referenda.
