Clinton to sit with CNN for first national interview

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to give CNN her first one-on-one national television interview since launching her 2016 presidential campaign.

The network said on Monday the Clinton interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar will air Tuesday at 5 p.m. and again at 8 p.m. EDT. CNN said Clinton will be interviewed during a campaign stop in Iowa City, Iowa.

The Democratic presidential front-runner has conducted local interviews in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada but has yet to sit for a one-on-one interview with national media. Clinton has emphasized smaller events and house parties since launching her campaign.

Clinton has a solid lead in polls but Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, her main Democratic challenger, has recently drawn large crowds.
