U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner, a Missouri Republican, ripped into presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a speech to Missouri GOP delegates Monday.

Clinton is “absolutely unfit for office,” Wagner said. “She’s not above the law ... I don’t know how she lives with herself.”

Wagner only mentioned GOP candidate Donald Trump briefly, referring to strong polling numbers for the candidate in Missouri. “We’re going to support our nominee,” Wagner said.

U.S. Rep. Sam Graves, a Missouri Republican, also spoke to the delegates. He said Trump had “interesting characteristics” but urged delegates trio focus on statewide races as well as the presidential campaign.

Graves said he expects Clinton to outspend Trump during the campaign.
