Hillary Clinton told Politico Wednesday that she will play nice with Republican leaders if she is elected on Nov. 8.
“I certainly intend to reach out to Republicans and Independents, the elected leadership of the Congress, which you mentioned,” she said to reporters on her campaign plane. “I’m going to be doing everything I can to reach out to people who didn’t vote for me because I want to be president for everybody and I think that’s going to require a lot of effort on my part to demonstrate my commitment to that. And I intend to do as much of it as I possibly can before the inauguration and afterwards."
Clinton, who was flying from Tampa on her plane, wouldn’t name Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or House Speaker Paul Ryan as congressman she would meet with despite reporters specifically asking about the two.
There has been much buzz surrounding the Clinton-Ryan relationship in the 2016 election cycle. The Washington Post wrote in early October that “their relationship could become Washington’s most important in determining whether the federal government functions over the next four years.”
Ryan has distanced himself from Republican nominee Donald Trump and is instead focusing on helping Republicans win the House and Senate races.
