SUBMITTED RELEASE FROM FRIENDS FOR HARRY REID
LAS VEGAS–Last night on Reno television, embattled U.S. Senate candidate Sue Lowden finally went on camera and responded directly to what has become a national debacle–her comments at a Mesquite town hall and a subsequent television interview where she suggested people should barter with doctors for health care, offering “a chicken” or services like painting in exchange for medical services. Lowden’s comments have made her the subject of national ridicule and caused numerous commentators, including prominent Nevada conservatives, to raise serious doubts about her candidacy.
Appearing on Reno’s KTNV, Lowden was asked directly what she thought of the story and was given the chance “to clear things up” and whether she “regrets her statement” in any regard.
All we can say… just watch.
