Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton fired against her fellow presidential competitor for what she said are “insinuations” and “innuendos” by his campaign against her.
Clinton’s remarks against Sanders came during the Democratic Debate Thursday night—just days before voters weigh in for the New Hampshire primaries. Sanders went after Clinton’s affiliation with Wall Street, most notably taking in thousands of dollars from institutions such as Goldman Sachs.
“Time and time again by innuendo, by insinuation there is this attack he is putting forth,” Clinton said, telling Sanders directly “I think it’s time to end the very artful smear that your campaign has been carrying out.”
“Yes, Secretary Clinton does represent the establishment. I represent, I hope, ordinary Americans,” Sanders said.
“If you’ve got something to say, say it,” Clinton said to Sanders.
The former secretary of state defended her record, saying she has never been influenced by financial support, adding that “people support me because they know me, they know my life’s work, they have worked with me.”
