Mitchell: ‘Facing an Uphill Battle in N.H., Clinton Spent Most of Sunday’ in Flint

‘For Bill Clinton the gloves are off’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

LAUER: “Over on the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders holds a lead in the polls over Clinton heading into the New Hampshire primary. It didn’t stop Clinton from making a detour on Sunday. Andrea Mitchell is following that race. Good morning to you.”
MITCHELL: “Good morning to you. Trailing Bernie Sanders badly here in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton left the state Sunday to go to Flint for a while. A signal to many that she’s already focusing on the primaries to come. But Bill Clinton was all about trying to change the outcome here in New Hampshire.”

MITCHELL (voice-over): “For Bill Clinton, the gloves are off in New Hampshire.”
B. CLINTON: “When you’re making a revolution, you can’t be too careful about the facts.”
MITCHELL (voice-over): “The former president criticizing sanders’ policy proposals and his behavior in the campaign.”
B. CLINTON: “Is he good for America? I don’t think so. Good for New Hampshire? I don’t think so.”
MITCHELL (voice-over): “Sanders’ senior advisor Tad Devine called President Clinton’s words, quote, disappointing. Saying the campaign will continue to focus on the issues. Clinton is also going after sanders’ supporters for using what he calls sexist language.”
B. CLINTON: “Attacks that are literally too profane, often, not to mention sexist.”
MITCHELL (voice-over): “Behind by double digits, Hillary Clinton was back in New Hampshire Sunday night. Appealing for votes, insisting she is not giving up on the granite state.”
H. CLINTON: “I’m going to work for every vote I can get before the close on Tuesday.”
MITCHELL (voice-over): “But the polls show her losing support among women, especially young women. Facing an uphill battle in New Hampshire, she spent most of Sunday in Flint.”
H. CLINTON: “What happened in flint is immoral.”
MITCHELL (voice-over): “The water crisis is an issue the campaign feels is resonating.”
H. CLINTON: “I will stand with you every step of the way. I will not for one minute forget about you.”
