State GOP chairs weigh in on Clinton's bid to run for president


Republican leaders in Missouri and Illinois have released statements following the announcement on Sunday that Hillary Clinton is running for president.

Missouri Republican Party Chairman John Hancock released the following statement:

“Despite decades in the public spotlight and at least ten years spent running for President, Hillary Clinton's record is one of policy failures and poor judgment, from HillaryCare to the recent scandals involving deleted emails from her time as Secretary of State and acceptance of foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation. At this time of great challenges at home and abroad, our nation desperately needs fresh, conservative leadership. I am confident that Missourians will reject any attempt to return to the tired liberal policies of the past.”

Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider issued the following statement:

“Hillary Clinton has been running for President for at least a decade, but she has been running from scandal for much longer. Today she finally made her campaign for President official. Clinton-world expects a coronation, because the Clintons try to play by a different set of rules. They think laws and regulations about transparency, accountability, and ethics don't apply to them. As her record is examined in more detail over the months to come, Clinton will be forced to answer tough questions. We look forward to seeing how Clinton answers for all the controversy, scandal, and hypocrisy.”
