Superdelegate: Clinton Camp Used Race To Divide Party
That’s the word from somebody who backed Clinton, and it ain’t pretty…
U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews, who supported Hillary Clinton throughout the primary season, disclosed he received a phone call shortly before the April 22 Pennsylvania primary from a top member of Clinton’s organization and that the caller explicitly discussed a strategy of winning over Jewish voters by exploiting tensions between Jews and African-Americans.
“There have been signals coming out of the Clinton campaign that have racial overtones that indeed disturb me,” Andrews said at his campaign headquarters in Cherry Hill Tuesday night after he lost his bid for the Democratic U.S. Senate nomination.
“Frankly, I had a private conversation with a high-ranking person in the campaign … that used a racial line of argument that I found very disconcerting. It was extremely disconcerting given the rank of this person. It was very disturbing.”
Obviously, there’s no indication or evidence that this was a comprehensive strategy, so this could just be one person going off script, but yes…it’s disturbing.
Because when you group this with all of the other racially charged statements and arguments the Clintons have made throughout the campaign, you emerge with a very unflattering portrait of a campaign that isn’t afraid to “go there.”
Yet another reason why Hillary won’t be VP?
