“I’m trying to be as transparent as possible”, Clinton said.
“She wants to do the same things that need to be done, but she’s got the savvy and the smarts to get it done”.
A little before 8 p.m., about 45 minutes into her town hall at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Concord, Hillary Clinton received a warning that she only had time for one more question. It doesn’t matter, though; It’s not about me.
Her poll numbers have taken a dive and in a recent national Quinnipiac survey, “liar” was the word most associated with the presumed Democratic nominee.
“Particularly ones like this, McCarthyite tactics, where the campaign isn’t willing to stand up and say- or the super PAC -this is what we’re saying”, Halperin said.
As Clinton’s primary Democratic rival, Sanders has been drawing massive crowds – another 5,000 in South Carolina Thursday night, according to his campaign – but so far failed to secure the endorsement of a single Democratic member of the House or Senate, nor a sitting governor.
On questions that a foreign government might have hacked her private server, Clinton replied, “There’s no evidence of that“.
The campaign noted that the “connection” to Chavez was that Sanders and former Rep. Joseph Kennedy, D-Mass., had worked together to provide low-income residents with affordable home heating oil supplied by the Venezuelan state-owned oil company, CITGO.
Clinton, whose campaign has always tried to tamper any notions of “inevitability” that have often surrounded her, says she’s not surprised by Sanders’ surge – that she always expected a competitive primary. GOP 2016 hopefuls including Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie and front-runner Donald Trump attacked her record as secretary of state as well as her trustworthiness. “I don’t think they did any damage to him whatsoever”. It also shed more light on the similar views both Corbyn and Bernie Sanders have regarding North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and its tense relations with Russian Federation .
Nevertheless, it seems Team Clinton isn’t waiting until this battlefield shifts down past the Mason-Dixon line, where she’s projected to do much better given that Sander’s core, white progressives, will be fewer in number post-New Hampshire. But Clinton, still animated from meeting with students at a Chicago elementary school where the principal is an old friend, said that’s not so with her. “But I believe he is fighting for me and my kids and for the rights of the middle class. And you see a lot of those folks”. However, when asked, he is very quick to outline differences between the two of them on policy issues.
Clinton last visited Maine in October 2014 to stump for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud. They also cited concerns about the aura of secrecy that has surrounded her since the server was discovered.
