ERIE, Pa. (AP) — Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus (ryns PREE'-bus) has introduced Donald Trump at a campaign rally in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania.

The Clinton campaign says Clinton and her husband paid a federal tax rate of 34.2 percent last year and donated 9.8 percent of their income to charity.
