Brutal video: Top Democratic Hillary supporter refuses 3 times to confirm she is honest

It sure speaks volumes when a top surrogate for Hillary Clinton cannot even confirm the candidate’s honesty.

New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, the Democratic challenger to Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte for the Senate, dodged the question three times in an interview with CNN’s  Manu Raju.

“I support Hillary Clinton for the presidency because her experience and her record demonstrates that she’s qualified to hold the job,” Hassan replied when asked if she thought Clinton was “honest and trustworthy.”

“She has a critical plan among others for making college more affordable,” Hassan responded to the second attempt by Raju to elicit an answer to the question.

“I think that she has demonstrated a commitment always to something beyond herself, bigger than herself,” she replied after a third question, directly asking if she found the Democratic presidential nominee to be trustworthy. The Clinton campaign clarified later that Hassan did find Clinton to be honest.

Ayotte’s campaign seized the opportunity to blast Hassan.

“Governor Hassan has consistently refused to answer simple questions and give straight answers to voters about where she stands,” Ayotte spokeswoman Liz Johnson said Tuesday in a statement. “This interview is just the latest proof that Hassan will not be an independent voice for New Hampshire, because she is more concerned with staying on script than being upfront with voters.”
