Tired of watching Democrats link Rep. Kevin Yoder with Donald Trump, Republicans are spending Friday linking Jay Sidie with Hillary Clinton.

FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress Friday, claiming to have found additional emails that may or may not be classified, or related to its earlier investigation of Clinton.

The GOP:

“The FBI is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton and Kansas voters deserve to know if Jay Sidie still stands by her,” said a statement from National Republican Congressional Committee Communications Director Katie Martin. “It’s time Sidie stood up for Kansans who deserve better than Hillary Clinton, who enables corruption, scandals and lies.”

A statement from Cate Duerst, Yoder campaign manager: “There is only one presidential candidate in this field who is subject to an open criminal investigation by the FBI, and that's Jay Sidie’s choice for the White House.”

Sidie, in a statement: “I’ve always trusted the Republican FBI director to do a good and independent job, and I continue to do so."

Sidie has said he supports Clinton. Yoder supports Trump.
