A spokesman for Hillary Clinton confirmed to NPR Sunday night that the Democratic nominee wouldn’t be traveling to California for scheduled campaign events, after it was revealed she was diagnosed with pneumonia last week.

NPR's Domenico Montanaro talks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about the historical precedence for illness on the campaign trail, and how the diagnosis changes the way voters will view Clinton over the final two months of the campaign.
