A Democratic congressional candidate drew a strong reaction from the audience when he called Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton “honest” during a debate Monday.
Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, currently a Democratic candidate to represent the Sunshine State’s 13th Congressional District, was asked during a debate with incumbent Republican Rep. David Jolly if he plans to vote for his party’s nominee for president.
“I am proud of Hillary Clinton,” he said. “I think she’s been a very good secretary of state, a very good senator from the state of New York. The thing I like most about her is I believe she is steady. I believe that she is strong. I believe that she is honest. And I look forward to voting for her.”
When Crist called Clinton “honest” the audience began to laugh and boo.
According to a recent Fox News poll, only 34 percent of voters believe Clinton is honest and trustworthy, while 64 percent believe she is not.
