Pro-Bush necons backing Hillary Clinton: Analyst

Neo-conservatists, who once supported former Republican US President George W. Bush, are now supporting Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, says an analyst.

“The Democratic Party… was greatly concerned about Bernie Sanders at the very beginning of his campaign when he was only polling 6 percent because they knew that Hillary Clinton was a deeply flawed candidate,” Rodney Martin, a former US congressional staffer, told Press TV on Wednesday.
