A day after Hillary Clinton called out Republican presidential candidates for curtailing voting rights in their states, two of these Republicans fired back at Clinton on Friday.
“Secretary Clinton doesn't know the first thing about voting rights in New Jersey or in the other states that she attacked,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said while stumping in New Hampshire. He was responding to Clinton’s statement on Thursday that Christie vetoed legislation to extending early voting in his state.
“My sense is that she just wants an opportunity to commit greater acts of voter fraud around the country.”
In addition, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry – who officially entered the presidential contest yesterday – took issue with Clinton’s complaint about a voter-ID law Perry signed into law in Texas.
“She just went into my home state and dissed every person who supports having an identification to either get on an airplane or vote,” he said on Fox News, per the New York Times.
On Thursday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker responded to Clinton decrying his state cutting back on early voting.
"Hillary Clinton's rejection of efforts to make it easier to vote and harder to cheat not only defies logic, but the will of the majority of Americans. Once again, Hillary Clinton's extreme views are far outside the mainstream," Walker said in a statement.
