Statement Following Secretary Clinton’s Stunning Michigan Loss

The following is a statement from America Rising Executive Director Colin Reed following Secretary Clinton’s stunning defeat in tonight’s Michigan primary, which Clinton was favored to win by more than 20 points:

“Secretary Clinton entered the Michigan primary leading by an average of 20 points, and instead was handed a devastating setback.  Her stunning defeat is a stark reminder that even Democratic primary voters think Secretary Clinton is dishonest and untrustworthy. Michigan is a populous and diverse state, and Clinton’s loss tonight lays bare her vulnerabilities among voters in a new, critical region of the country: the industrial Midwest. Expect to see an uptick in desperate Clinton campaign attacks in the lead-up to next week’s primaries.”
