Is Hillary Clinton joining national Democrats in showing “total insensitivity to Chicago, African-American women and the Democratic process”?
That’s a question people should be asking after Hillary followed the DSCC’s lead and endorsed Tammy Duckworth over Andrea Zopp in the Illinois Democratic Primary for U.S. Senate.
Zopp called out the DSCC for its endorsement, saying that it showed “total insensitivity to Chicago, African-American women and the democratic process.” Shortly thereafter, Jesse Jackson also slammed Senate Democrats for the slight.
Shouldn’t the same criticisms levied at the DSCC by Zopp and Jackson also apply to Hillary Clinton? While Hillary courts the African-American community in her embattled primary, Hillary doesn’t give the time of day to a leading African-American woman running for the U.S. Senate in Hillary’s original home state.
Like the DSCC, Hillary Clinton’s willingness to insert herself into the Illinois Democratic Senate primary and endorse Tammy Duckworth over Andrea Zopp shows a “total insensitivity to Chicago, African American women and the democratic process.”
