AirTalk’s weekly politics segment looks at the candidates’ responses to the weekend attacks in New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota.

Hillary Clinton talked about the threat on the tarmac in White Plains, New York and criticized Donald Trump's rhetoric about terrorism. Trump was on Fox News Channel this morning. Larry and guests discuss how the threat of future terrorist attacks play into the election.

And on the California front, just how much money is coming into the state to back measures on the November ballot? Larry talks with CALMatters reporter Laurel Rosenhall about tracing the money.
