When Hillary Clinton's former campaign manager says "Look, this was bad. I can’t sugarcoat it," you know she really stepped in it.
So why is it so hard for Sherrod Brown and Ohio Democrats to denounce her attacks on Ohioans?
Sherrod Brown stumped for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and boasted about how she could have won if he was her running mate. Now he says "I really don't care what she said."
That's much different than what other Senate Democrats have said. For instance, Claire McCaskill (D Mo.) called Hillary's attack "fighting words."
"Those are kind of fighting words for me because I’m partial to Missouri voters," McCaskill said. "I think they were expressing their frustration with the status quo. I may not have agreed with their choice, but I certainly respect them. And I don’t think that’s the way you should talk about any voter, especially ones in my state."
Hillary Clinton, Sherrod Brown and Ohio Democrats still haven't learned their lesson from 2016. Instead of focussing on why Democrats continue to lose support Ohio, they simply write us off as lesser people.
"Sherrod Brown's response to Hillary Clinton tells us a lot about his personal beliefs of Ohioans - he doesn't care." Ohio Republican Party spokesman Blaine Kelly said. "One look at his voting record or his donor list shows us that. When he voted against tax reform, he told working Ohio families he didn't care that the extra money they save will help make ends meet. Sherrod Brown may not care, but Ohio voters do. President Trump and Ohio Republicans are delivering results for these families, and we welcome disaffected Democrats to join us."
