Concord – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding Secretary of State Bill Gardner being searched in order to enter his own office:
“Secretary of State Bill Gardner has served with distinction for nearly four decades and has never had to undergo this type of disrespectful behavior from a presidential candidate. Secretary Clinton’s treatment of Secretary Gardner is embarrassing and is the latest example of the arrogant campaign that she is running in New Hampshire. The Clinton campaign should immediately apologize for this absurd stunt.”
Sadly, this isn’t the first time the Clinton campaign has disrespected Secretary Gardner. Last month, a top Clinton campaign surrogate personally attacked his character and service. In 1991 and 1995 for her husband, and in 2007 for herself, Clinton filed for president with Secretary Gardner and did not subject him to a physical search.
In July, Clinton's campaign physically roped off reporters in order to keep them at bay.
