Kristin and Shane are joined by National Journal columnist, Josh Kraushaar to discuss who is winning the presidential money race. Hillary Clinton pulled in the most campaign donations this quarter, but with so much being done by the Republican super PACs, this may not mean she has the greater financial position. Also this week, Scott Walker finally announced his candidacy, but with little fanfare as his launch was overtaken by events. National Journal released results from an exclusive survey, revealing that even establishment Republicans are sharply divided over who their frontrunner is. And with the Iran nuclear deal in hand, Clinton proves our hosts last week wrong by coming out in a strong defense of the deal.
