ROANOKE (AP) – Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence held their first campaign event since the GOP convention Monday afternoon in Roanoke.

The visit to Roanoke comes just a few days after Hillary Clinton announced Virginia Senator Tim Kaine to be her running mate.

Trump said at the event that the Democrats’ outgoing party head, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is “highly over-rated,” and he’s accusing Hillary Clinton of throwing Wasserman Schultz “under the bus.”

Trump told supporters that Clinton’s “disloyalty was incredible” for allowing Wasserman Schultz to be pushed out.

Wasserman Schultz goes from favored to on the outs

Her exit comes after the release of hacked emails that suggest some Democratic National Committee staff members favored Clinton over primary rival Bernie Sanders.

Trump claims Wasserman Schultz “worked very hard to rig the system” in Clinton’s favor.
