CHARLESTON, South Carolina — GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says he’s worried about Hillary Clinton’s political health, not her medical records.

Breitbart News asked Huckabee if Clinton should release all of her medical records relating to her fall in 2012, which resulted in a concussion and a blood clot.

“I’ll leave that to Hillary. I’m not a practicing physician, so I’m not going to diagnose anything with her,” Huckabee responded to a question referencing a recent Breitbart News story revealing medical professionals and security officials raising concerns about the former Secretary of State’s health status. Huckabee added, “I’m concerned for her political health.”

I hope that people continue to realize that she has been very dishonest about many of the things she’s done as Secretary of State. I think that is a greater concern to me that she would become a credible candidate for President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of our military when she left people stranded in Benghazi begging for help and never sent the help. Why that happened, I don’t know, but that is a greater concern to me than her last medical checkup.

Huckabee’s comments on Benghazi come the day before the premier of “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” which tells the story of what happened that night surrounding a stand-down order preventing military personnel from aiding the U.S. consulate under attack during Clinton’s watch as Secretary of State.
