Former Obama advisor David Axelrod tells Dems not to donate to Hillary Clinton

The man who orchestrated President Obama’s 2008 primary win over Hillary Clinton is telling Democrats not to donate to Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Veteran strategist David Axelrod said, donors instead need to focus on the 2014 elections, tweeting Thursday:

With Clinton’s campaign gaining steam, Democrats are concerned her early efforts could hurt midterm election candidates, according to a recent Wall Street Journal report, which said:

Of course, a tweet such as that wouldn’t go unanswered:
