Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is doubling-down on Karl Rove's assertion that Hillary Clinton's age and health will both be concerns should she run for president in 2016.
"Health and age is fair game," Priebus said in an appearance on Sunday's Meet the Press. "It was fair game for Ronald Reagan. It was fair game for John McCain."
"I don't think there's a graceful way to bring up age, health and fitness for a candidate who wants to be president of the United States," he added.
Last week, GOP strategist Karl Rove said Clinton would need to answer questions about a head injury she sustained after taking a tumble in 2012. Though he's since walked back his initial suggestion that she was hiding serious brain damage, he still insists she suffered a "traumatic brain injury" and that her age and mental fortitude will be focal points in 2016. --Jon Terbush
