Clinton Campaign: Hillary Will ‘Probably’ Do Press Conferences Going Forward

• July 25, 2016 12:20 pm


Hillary Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon said Monday that Clinton would "probably" do press conferences going forward when asked about the more than 230 days it has been since she held one.

Campaign Manager Robby Mook was also asked whether the campaign had seen a copy of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) remarks he will make Monday at the Democratic National Convention. Mook laughed before responding.

"First of all, again in contrast to Ted Cruz, Senator Sanders has already endorsed Secretary Clinton," Mook said. "He gave an outstanding speech in New Hampshire a few weeks ago. I expect us to hear a very similar speech tonight … We’re excited. We think it’s going to be a great way to close out the evening."

The reporter appeared to repeat his question about Clinton’s press conference, and Mook laughed again.

"I’ll leave that to Brian to answer," he said, pointing to Fallon. "I just work here."

"I think you’ll be continuing to see Secretary Clinton answer questions in a variety of formats, including probably press conferences, before the whole thing is over," Fallon said. "She continues to take questions on the road, do interviews, and so she’s been answering questions on any number of topics, including emails and everything else, for a long time now."

The GOP noted on June 21 that it had been 200 days since Clinton held a press conference. The date was December 4, 2015.
