When Brad Ashford sees Hillary Clinton coming, he’s going to run the other way.
The Nebraska Democrat congressman is one in a growing group of liberals that are avoiding being seen with their nominee for president.
Ashford stuttered and stammered when he was asked by a local TV station if he was going to campaign with Clinton.
“I, I’m not going to campaign with her,” he promised KMTV.
“I really, I, I, I, I, that’s not my, my, my role, uh, at all, uh,” he said. “I don’t believe — my responsibility is to work directly with my constituents,” he said, seemingly groping for words.
Ashford is the only Democrat elected to Congress from Nebraska.
