Hillary Clinton denounced “scorched earth” tactics by Republicans on Wednesday, saying Democrats must not allow themselves to turn away from the election in disgust.
Those tactics have recently included protesters accusing former president Bill Clinton of rape. Clinton’s campaign appearances were interrupted two days in a row this week by people shouting while holding or wearing T-shirts that brand her husband a rapist.
Her rally here was briefly interrupted by two demonstrators, but it was not clear they were accusing Clinton’s husband.
“Americans want to turn out in as large numbers as possible,” Clinton said to applause. “Reject the dark and divisive and hateful campaign that is being run.”
The Democratic presidential nominee contrasted what she calls Republican Donald Trump’s efforts to divide voters and her own plan to govern inclusively.
