Democrats See an Email Issue That Won’t Die: Concern That Clinton’s Response Falls Short, by Patrick Healey, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Huberman

“Democrat leaders are increasingly frustrated by Hillary Rodham Clinton’s failure to put to rest questions about her State Department email practices and ease growing doubts among voters about her honesty and trustworthiness…that she is not treating it seriously enough…

‘They’ve handled the email issue poorly, maybe atrociously, certainly horribly,’ said Edward G. Rendell, a former governor of Pennsylvania and a supporter of Mrs. Clinton’s candidacy. ‘The campaign has been incredibly tone-deaf, not seeing this as a more serious issue.  She should have turned over the email server at the start, because they should have known they’d be forced to give it up. But at this point, there’s nothing they can do to kill the issue–they’re just playing defense.”

Mrs. Clinton has lost control of this issue and is on the defensive.
