Just two and a half weeks out from the first of three presidential debates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump continue to target Pennsylvania’s prized 20 electoral votes in their quest for the presidency.

Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine stepped off the campaign trail for a moment to speak with NewsWorks Tonight’s Dave Heller.

Earlier in August, Trump told supporters at a campaign stop in Pennsylvania that the only way he could lose the state of Pennsylvania in the election is if polling were rigged.

“What exactly does ‘rigging’ mean? Is he saying Pennsylvanians can’t be trusted to run an election?” Kaine said. “It’s an insult to Pennsylvania voters and an insult to Pennsylvania registrars.”

Asked about Clinton’s unshakable email scandal, Kaine said that, by apologizing, she has done all she can. “There are some who long ago made up their mind that they weren’t going to vote for Hillary and can’t accept that,” he added.
