'She'd probably get shot at the state line.'
When a reporter noted that Clinton undoubtedly enjoys a measurable amount of support in a state where her husband served as governor, Rhoda replied, "Nobody has any affection for her. The majority don't."
"That comment was taken way out of context," 2nd Congressional District party chairman Johnny Rhoda told Business Insider about the U.S. News report on his remarks. "It certainly was not meant in a threatening or hostile way at all. It was just a comment. Perhaps I used the wrong word."
"It was completely blown out of proportion," he added.
The U.S. News reporter who reported Rhoda's initial quote, David Catanese, wasn't having it.
"Oh, yes, 'taken out of context,'" Catanese told Business Insider in an email. "As in — taken out of our on-the-record conversation and into print."
“If Republicans like French Hill are relying on help from party officials who use such violent rhetoric in everyday conversation, what does that say about the way French Hill relates to everyday Arkansans? French Hill should denounce Mr. Rhoda’s despicable comments and ask for his resignation immediately.”
Griffin has praised Rhoda, calling him “a major asset to our campaign” and a “leader in Arkansas” and added “I know he will be a great help in spreading our message of common sense conservative values.”
John Burkhalter knows Arkansans - regardless of political party- abhor violence in our politics and our communities. Those are the Arkansas values we all share.
“Dangerous and violence-inciting language may work in Washington. But Mr. Rhoda’s divisive and threatening words have no place in Arkansas. Congressman Griffin may be used to these tactics but we call on him to immediately denounce the statement, and relieve Mr. Rhoda from any official role in his campaign, and issue an unequivocal apology,” said Mariah Hatta with the John Burkhalter for Lieutenant Governor campaign.
"The Democrat nominee for lieutenant governor is apparently confused by the most basic of facts because Mr. Rhoda has no connection to our campaign for lieutenant governor and his statement is obviously inappropriate."Of course Rhoda has no connection to THIS campaign. But he DID have a connection to an earlier campaign for congress, which is how the news release is phrased. I've asked if they still think so highly of Dr. Rhoda as they did then when they were singing his praises and his fake Ph.D.

That's one helluva story Cato. You know there's some serious corruption being hidden.
