CNN’s Don Lemon asked Donald Trump in an interview set to air later tonight whether the American people can expect to see more of his fourth wife on the campaign trail in the near future. “I think very much so,” Trump said. “She’s very much into the whole women’s health issues,” he added, referencing an issue on which he could probably use the help. “I think she’ll be amazing and I think Ivanka’s going to be amazing,” Trump said, referencing his daughter, who has been far more present in Trump’s campaign than Melania has.

The summer of 2015 wasn’t particularly kind to Hillary Clinton, who saw the share of Americans who view her negatively expand to a majority as her once-formidable primary lead fell to a modest advantage. Gallup surveys show her image falling particularly among men, as the pollster’s analysts recently noted.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who chaired Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, would like to see the former Secretary of State loosen up a bit on the campaign trail as she makes her second bid. “I do think it’s actually important,” McAuliffe told Fortune editor Alan Murray on Tuesday at the Brainstorm Tech conference in Austin. “People want to see people having fun at what they’re doing.”
