FILE – In this April 18, 2016 file photo, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign stop in Buffalo, N.Y. Day after day, the candidates for president wake up, brush their teeth and pump themselves up to say the same thing they did yesterday. Most of what they say won’t make the evening news, or get tweeted or repeated. But that spiel they repeat, with variations, to audience after audience in state after state, is a campaign essential.
Lo, the lowly stump speech. (AP Photo/John Minchillo, File)
