Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s campaign camp sent out a memo to supporters this week urging them to stay calm and assuring the rash of scandals that have been plaguing the former secretary of state will soon become things of the past.
The campaign also sought to say: don’t worry – this is pretty much par for the course for politics.
“Winning campaigns have a plan and stick to it, in good times and bad. President Obama endured significant pressure in 2007 to abandon Iowa and ultimately prevailed,” campaign manager Robby Mook wrote in the six-page memo distributed by communications director Jennifer Palmieri to “Interested Parties,” according to the document published by Vox.
The memo comes as Clinton faces lagging poll numbers, and main contender Bernie Sanders, a self-declared socialist seeking the high executive office, is seeing stellar feedback from constituents.
Mook also wrote, Politico reported: “It’s difficult to overstate how damaged the GOP brand is, as a majority of Americans view the Republican Party as out of date and out of touch. Their increasingly backwards agenda was on full display at last week’s debate. … On top of that, congressional Republicans are waging a multi-million dollar, taxpayer-financed campaign against her. It has also gone on longer than the investigations of Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy assassination, Iran-Contra and Hurricane Katrina.”
