Clinton Chairman Podesta: Pence 'Incredibly Divisive' Choice

 

Friday, 15 Jul 2016 11:53 AM

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign says Donald Trump has "doubled down" on what the Clinton team calls his "disturbing beliefs" by choosing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate.

Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta says Pence is "an incredibly divisive and unpopular figure."

Podesta says Pence is known for supporting what Podesta calls "discriminatory politics and failed economic policies that favor millionaires and corporations over working families."

Clinton's campaign says Pence was an early advocate for the tea party in Congress — and as governor, pushed a law that discriminated against gays and lesbians and alienated businesses in Indiana.

The Clinton team notes Pence led the fight to defund Planned Parenthood and restrict abortion rights and has opposed raising the federal minimum wage.
