Hillary Phones It In: Clinton calls Louisiana governor to discuss floods
WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton has called Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards to discuss the state’s devastating flooding and says the state’s relief effort, “can’t afford any distractions.”
The Democratic presidential nominee says in a Facebook post that her “heart breaks for Louisiana,” where a torrent of about 2 feet of rain deluged the southern part of the state, damaging tens of thousands of home and affecting more than 100,000 people.
Clinton’s campaign released the post on the same day that Republican Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence traveled to Louisiana to inspect the flood damage.
Clinton is urging people to reach out to the Red Cross and the Baton Rouge Area Foundation to help with flood relief. – READ MORE
