Tuesday will mark exactly 30 days since Hillary Rodham Clinton launched her official presidential bid for the White House, yet she still hasn’t done a formal sit down interview with national media, setting a record for the longest running presidential candidate without doing so following a campaign launch, as first reported by Breitbart News.
Unlike Clinton, GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has been on what CNN coined a “media blitz” introducing herself to voters.
“Carly has actually answered 322 questions since her announcement on Monday,” said Anna Epstein, spokesperson for Fiorina. “In the last eight days, Carly has been interviewed almost 30 times and answered well over 300 questions.”
Following Breitbart News’ first report noting Clinton’s record media silence, CNN reported, “Since her presidential campaign announcement on April 12, Clinton has not held a formal press conference. While on the campaign trail, she has responded – reluctantly at times – to roughly eight questions from journalists.”
“Unlike Hillary Clinton, I am not afraid to answer questions about my track record or my accomplishments or my principles,” said Fiorina.
