The Hillary Clinton campaign poked fun at a growing brouhaha over its decision to rope off the press while she paraded in New Hampshire.
"While the GOP may want to spin a good yarn on this, let's not get tied up in knots," reads a statement from Clinton's traveling press secretary Nick Merrill.
Clinton participated in a Fourth of July parade in Gorham, N.H., and cordoned off the press with a rope line that moved as the candidate advanced in the parade.
Merrill said that the campaign wanted to accommodate the press and allow Clinton to greet voters, "and allow the press to be right there in the parade with her as opposed to preset locations. And that's what we did."
