    Hillary Clinton is on the campaign trail today. She’s in New Hampshire this afternoon.

    She’s facing renewed questions today about the Clinton Foundation and about her emails while Secretary of State.

    The Washington Post reporting the Clinton Foundation disclosed more than $26 million in previously undisclosed donations. Rosalind Helderman and Tom Hamburger writing, “The disclosure came as the foundation faced questions over whether it fully complied with a 2008 ethics agreement to reveal its donors and whether any of its funding sources present conflicts of interest for Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins her presidential campaign.”

    An early leak of some of Hillary Clinton’s emails while Secretary of State show concerns over the politics of the Benghazi terror attack and an outsized role played by Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal who blamed the terror attacks on an anti-Islam video. He later backed off that claim.  Fox News may get access to several hundred of those emails today. News as we get it.

    Republicans are gathered for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City. Senator Lindsay Graham, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Senator Marco Rubio, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and former FL Governor Jeb Bush are all participating.

    Jeb Bush continues to face questions about his brother’s time as President.. trying to walk a fine line between distancing himself from his brother’s unpopular positions, and remaining loyal. Bush saying "I think that in Washington, during my brother's time, Republicans spent too much money. I think he could have used the veto power - he didn't have line-item veto power, but he could have brought budget discipline to Washington, D.C."
