Rep. Matt Cartwright on Monday made it clear he doesn’t have an enemies list.
The Pennsylvania Democrat was asked about the hit list that Bill and Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonSanders shares star power with NY House hopeful Trump, Clinton fundraising off Brexit vote UK vote triggers talks with US MORE kept during the 2008 election cycle. The existence of the manifest is detailed in a new book written by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Politico’s Jonathan Allen titled, HRC: States Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton.
The freshman member noted he’s only been in politics for one year. So we’ll check back with Cartwright in about a decade, because it takes time to attract enemies.
Meanwhile, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) on Monday expressed shock that his name showed up on the Clinton list. He said in an earlier interview on MSNBC that “it’s an unsolved mystery, and maybe someone will pick up the phone and tell me.”
Van Hollen added that he would be a supporter of Hillary Clinton, if she runs. Uh oh. That could get Van Hollen on Vice President Biden’s list — if he has one, of course.
