Florida Democrat’s Talking Points Collapse After Questions On Clinton FBI Inquiry

Over the weekend, Democrat Stephanie Murphy (FL-07) dodged two questions from a Washington Post reporter about Hillary Clinton’s emails and the reopened FBI inquiry.

Given two opportunities to discuss Clinton’s emails, Murphy tried to say she was “really just focused on the issues that are important to the voters in central Florida.” But the reporter quickly called her out for connecting her opponent to the presidential race while she tried to avoid any connection to Clinton, the candidate she strongly supports. Murphy’s inability to answer a simple question about a serious FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton proves that her entire campaign is dependent on D.C. Democrats’ talking points.

The dismissive attitude exhibited by Stephanie Murphy, a faithful Clinton supporter, toward a significant FBI investigation is very troubling.
