An out-of-work coal miner who confronted Hillary Clinton in an infamous exchange caught on video is now himself jumping into the political arena. Bo Copley has announced he is running for Congress against Democrat Joe Manchin.
In May of 2016, Copley attended a Q&A with Hillary Clinton in West Virginia. He asked the candidate how she can claim to support working coal miners in the state when she had publicly stated that she wanted to “put coal miners out of business.” Hillary’s flustered response and inability to answer the question is seen as a turning point in the campaign. Clinton went on to lose large chunks of blue collar union votes to Donald Trump.
Almost exactly one year since that exchange, Copley is now running for office.
Here is video from the 2016 confrontation with Hillary Clinton.
Here is video from his appearance on Fox News on Friday, where he discussed his bid for Congress.
