Clinton Campaign Keeps Reporters Back With Rope


Posted on

Hillary Clinton marched in a New Hampshire Fourth of July parade on Saturday, where the campaign kept reporters back with the use of a rope line.

So many people trying to get close to Hillary her aides are using a rope to keep press at distance

Before rope, Clinton camp set up press pen areas along parade route. They went unused. Obvsly press wouldn't stay penned on public street.

@TajMagruder @danmericaCNN the campaign's goal is to give voters visibility with the candidate. But the rope line was not conducive to cvg

Which created sort of a... unusual atmosphere at the parade.
