(WLUK) -- A Hillary Clinton supporter and former Maryland attorney general says Clinton needs to be herself at the first 2016 presidential debate Monday night.

Doug Gansler talked about the presidential race Thursday morning in a Beyond the Podium interview on Good Day Wisconsin.

"I think she just needs to come across as who she is," said Gansler. "She's been around for two decades. People know her. People know the Clintons. (Donald) Trump is something that's new. I think she has to really exude what she is. She's brilliant. She's got a record of leadership. She's somebody who can protect the country, and she embraces our diversity."
