CNN lands Hillary Clinton's first nationally televised interview since her campaign launch

Since the launch of her presidential campaign in April, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has remained rather tight-lipped when it comes to speaking with the press. However, the Democratic candidate for president will break her silence on Tuesday in an exclusive interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar.

While Clinton continues to hold her place as the frontrunner of the Democratic field, fellow candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has made significant gains in recent polls. A recent CNN/ORC poll found that 43 percent of New Hampshire Democrats back Clinton, while a substantial 35 percent support Sanders. Clinton's campaign is maybe even a little worried.

Jennifer Palmieri, the communications director for the Clinton campaign, acknowledged that Clinton is "paying a price" for refusing to do national interviews until now, in the face of criticism over her deleted emails, potential conflicts of interest regarding her husband's foundation, and other controversies. "America will see more of her," Palmieri said.
