Wednesday’s Talk Business & Politics Daily features an interview with KATV’s Elicia Dover from Philadelphia on the latest controversies in the Presidential race.

Plus, TB&P business editor Wes Brown and Roby Brock discuss bank profits, the Fayetteville Shale Play, Federal Reserve and interest rates and the good (and bad) news in the latest state jobs report. We’ll also share three big numbers you need to know about on the political front and Kim Souza offers analysis on the latest consumer spending estimates for back-to-school shopping.

Elicia Dover reports from the streets of Philadelphia on reaction from the Clinton campaign to Donald Trump’s suggestion that the Russian government produce Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

She also visits with the Arkansas delegation, many of whom said former President Bill Clinton’s speech last night brought back memories and revealed some new items in Hillary Clinton’s early activist days in Arkansas when she was First Lady.

Dover also previews tonight’s jam-packed speaking roster that includes former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Vice-president Joe Biden, running mate Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia and President Barack Obama.

Wes Brown and Roby Brock square off in a round of 4 Minutes, 4 Questions. Topics include:

  • Which public bank in Arkansas had the strongest second quarter?
  • What impressed the most and least in the state’s latest jobless report?
  • Will Southwestern Energy’s restart in the Fayetteville Shale Play spark others to follow?
  • When might the Feds increase interest rates – this year or next?
