There is a familiar face on the campaign trail with Hillary Clinton today in North Carolina. Political reporter Courtney Gross has that story.
Some New Yorkers may not recognize the name Gwen Carr, but they will probably recognize her face.
She is the mother of Eric Garner, the man who was killed on Staten Island after being put in a police chokehold some two years ago. She, along with other mothers who have lost their children to gun violence or police incidents, were with Hillary Clinton today in North Carolina.
"If we don't stand up for everyone's rights we cede the ground to those who would go after everyone's rights," Clinton said.
In what appears to be a show of confidence from the Clinton campaign, the Democrat told reporters yesterday she is no longer thinking about responding to Trump anymore and is instead thinking about boosting other Democrats down the ballot.
It is a clear response to Clinton's lead in the polls over Donald Trump, who will be campaigning in Florida Sunday.
On Saturday he was supposed to make a major policy speech about what he would do during his first 100 days in office. Instead what made headlines was his attack on the women who have accused him of sexual assault, threatening to sue them. Here is his campaign manager responding to that this morning.
"He's just trying to defend himself against false accusers," said Kellyanne Conway. "Those incidents never happened yet they are covered in the media every day. He can't get fair coverage of his substantive points. Many in the media want to say it's over. For the 12th time they are counting Donald Trump out."
