(Big League Politics) – Failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton was involved in a car accident on her way to a fundraiser for Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) Monday night.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee posted video of the accident, which occurred in a parking garage, to their Twitter account.
According to NTK, Clinton occupied the van with longtime aid Huma Abedin. Both were shaken, but unharmed.
This continues a disastrous midterm year for Clinton, who has been chastised even by fellow Democrats for her presence on the campaign trail. After saying that Democrats “cannot be civil” towards Republicans, her rhetoric has been denounced.
“I mean, I can’t imagine how you get anything done if you don’t bring civility back into politics,” said Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), adding that she thought Clinton’s comments were “ridiculous.”
“I think it’s pretty wise for her to not show up,” said Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) in reference to Clinton’s presence on the campaign trail.
Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) was glad that the Clinton’s are waiting until after election day to being their 13-city bus tour around North America.
“I think they’re measuring how they can have the best, positive impact and have kind of decided to wait until after the election,” Durbin said.
