The guest list this Sunday morning is less interesting than the change in dynamic over the last 48 hours. Team Trump booked these slots expecting they’d be fielding questions about their poll numbers and his difficult path to 270 in the electoral college. Now they’ll spend the morning on offense over the FBI reopening the investigation into Clinton’s emails. Three of the campaign’s most reliable surrogates are on tap: Mike Pence will be on “Meet the Press” and “Face the Nation,” Kellyanne Conway will be on “State of the Union,” and Reince Priebus will be on “Fox News Sunday.” Reince will probably have the hardest time of it as he’s bound to get a few uncomfortable questions about Trump turning off most of the money tap this month to the RNC. How will Priebus make up the shortfall and keep the ground game operating at full tilt, let alone spread some money around to downballot races?
The lone big-name Democratic surrogate this morning is Joe Biden, who’ll also be on “Face the Nation” to discuss wanting to fight Trump and maybe wanting to fight Anthony Weiner. No doubt there’ll be a few lesser lefties deployed at the last minute to spin the Emailgate eruption too. Maybe John Podesta? He knows something about good email practices, right? The full line-up is at the AP.
