Hillary Clinton campaign strategist Joel Benenson made an eyebrow-raising claim Friday on CNN, accusing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) of running the most negative Democratic primary campaign in history.
Sanders has aired ads attacking Wall Street and big banks without naming Clinton, who has received huge speaking fees from Goldman Sachs, but he has also made it clear he would not engage in personal mud-slinging during the campaign.
"I think he's going negative," Benenson said. "I think he's probably running the most negative campaign of any Democratic presidential candidate."
"You think so?" anchor Kate Bolduan asked.
"I think so, in a presidential primary season, yes," Benenson said. "I think he's been more personal in his attacks. I think he's been increasing it on the stump recently, and I do, I can't think of one. Even in a very hard-fought campaign in 2008, I don't think we had the range of negativity on either side, and I was on Obama's side then, that we've had now."
