WASHINGTON — The Latest on Mike Pence in the U.S. presidential race (all times EDT):
Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence says “Dishonest Hillary” should not compare herself to “Honest Abe.”
Pence is referring to a moment at Sunday’s debate when Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, suggested it’s smart to have differing public and private positions and said Abraham Lincoln did.
Clinton’s Lincoln comment came when she was asked about recently leaked emails showing she made similar comments during a private speech to Wall Street leaders.
Pence says Clinton was asked an honest question but gave instead a “lecture on Abraham Lincoln” that he had a “hard time following.”
