From the AP:
During a series of satellite television interviews, [Hillary] Clinton was questioned by Dallas station KTVT about comments by Adelfa Callejo, a local activist who supports Clinton candidacy. The interviewer quoted Callejo as saying “Obama’s problem is he happens to be black” and asked Clinton to respond.
“Well obviously I want all of us judged on our merits,” Clinton said. “I believe strongly that the fact we have an African American and a woman running for the Democratic nomination is historical and I’m very, very proud of that.”
“I want people though to look beyond, look beyond race and gender, look at our records, look at what we stand for, look at what we’ve done and I think that’s what most voters are looking for,” she said.
The interviewer asked Clinton whether she rejected or denounced Callejo’s comment.
“People have every reason to express their opinions, I just don’t agree with that,” she said, adding “You know, this is a free country. People get to express their opinions.”
Late Update: According to the Dallas Morning News, the Clinton campaign later issued a statement: “After confirming that they were accurately portrayed, Senator Clinton, of course, denounces and rejects them.”
