Maggie Hassan, the Democratic governor of New Hampshire who has endorsed Hillary Clinton, refused to answer three times in an interview with CNN whether or not the former secretary of state was honest.

In an interview airing on “New Day,” CNN’s Manu Raju noted that in a recent CNN/ORC poll, 64 percent of voters believe that Clinton is not honest or trustworthy.

Raju then emphasized that in his interview, that when “asked three times, Hassan would not give her opinion.”

In his first attempt to get an answer from Hassan, Raju asked, “Do you think [Clinton] is honest and trustworthy?”

“I support Hillary Clinton for the presidency because her experience and her record demonstrate she is qualified to hold the job,” Hassan said in her first non-answer.

Raju asked again, “Do you think she is honest?”

“She has um, a critical, um critical plan among others for making college more affordable,” Hassan answered.

“But do you think that she is trustworthy,” Raju reiterated.

“I think that she has demonstrated a commitment always to something beyond herself, bigger than herself,” Hassan said in her third evasion of the question.

Once the cameras were off and the interview was completed, Raju said, “After this interview, Hassan’s campaign clarifying that she does believe Clinton is honest.”

Hassan is currently running for senate against incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte.
