Clinton and Julison, apropos on so many levels….
SOUTH CAROLINA – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton phoned Walter Scott’s family Wednesday, offering them her condolences following his death in a police shooting earlier this year.
Clinton called his mother, Judy Scott, while campaigning in South Carolina, according to CNN.
Ryan Julison, a spokesman for the Scott family’s legal representation, said Clinton promised his surviving loved ones that she was “going to work to make sure this doesn’t happen to another family,” it said.
“She told Mrs. Scott that she was very sorry for her family having to go through this,” Julison said of the five-minute phone call, the publication reported.
“Mrs. Scott asked if it was possible for them to meet, to which Secretary Clinton said they would try to make that happen next time she was in the area,” Julison said, according to CNN.
“Judy Scott was very appreciative,” he added. “Mrs. Clinton is the first presidential candidate to call the family and she was really impressed with what Mrs. Clinton has to say.” (read more)
