Halperin: I Have Never Dealt with a Campaign as ‘Unresponsive’ as Hillary’s

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin discussed Hillary Clinton avoiding the press during her presidential campaign and said, “I never dealt with a campaign in my career that is so unresponsive.”

Halperin said, “There are substantive issues that she [Hillary Clinton] has to address. This week I tried to get answers to some stories that broke about President Clinton’s finances. I never dealt with a campaign in my career that is so unresponsive.  They said we’ll get you those answers and then simply don’t. For a major campaign that’s well staffed, I have never encountered that. And I think that suggests they dont want to answer the questions. In the short term, most Democrat strategists  I talk to say that’s the right thing to do because it’s not hurting her poll numbers.”

His “With All Due Respect” co-host  John Heilemann agreed and said,”There is a gnawing sense among democrats, especially establishment democrats, that they aren’t handling these things well. The stories keep building on themselves and could be problematic the general election.”
