Clinton email about Marco Rubio



More signs the Clinton campaign feared Marco Rubio. Another email surfaces in the WikiLeaks hack of John Podesta.

"I’m beginning to worry more about Rubio than the others," pollster Joel Benenson wrote in a February 2015 email to Clinton's team. "He’s playing this very smart – only one who didn’t duck like a chicken shit on the Q of whether POTUS loves America. He has stronger right wing cred than Jeb and he’s finding a way to the middle enough for now and he will be the most exciting choice to Republicans. Could pose a real threat with Latinos etc."

In another email, Clinton's team was left impressed by Rubio's presidential announcement speech.
