|2016 U.S. Senate candidate|
Now a new book, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign, reports that Van Hollen pressed Maryland labor union officials to limit their mobilization of African-American voters in the 2016 Democratic primary. When presidential candidate Hillary Clinton got wind of Van Hollen's plan, she grew enraged, asking staffers, "Who gives a f*** about Chris Van Hollen?" authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes write.
Edwards lost to Van Hollen, but bested him among black voters.
