Under pressure from the Republican Party, real estate mogul Donald Trump signed a pledge that he wouldn't run as a third party candidate, and he and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush continued to trade jabs about whether speaking Spanish is appropriate on the campaign trail.

In the media, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina succeeded in getting CNN to change its polling criteria for candidates to qualify for a Sept. 16th debate.

In the polls this week, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson showed growing support among Republican primary voters.

On the other side of the aisle, Vice President Joe Biden told Jewish voters in Florida that "the honest to God answer" about whether he'll run from the Democratic Party nomination is "I just don't know."

Meanwhile, more of Hillary Clinton's emails were released, and an aide said he would plead the Fifth in congressional hearings about those emails.

Julie Mason, host of "Press Pool" on SiriusXM, and White House correspondent Margaret Talev of Bloomberg News join Here & Now hosts Robin Young and Lisa Mullins to recap news from the week in the race for 2016.
