Some NC 'Women for Hillary'... aren't

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a list of 100 North Carolina “Women for Hillary” Tuesday, featuring 98 of the state’s most prominent Democratic women – and two men with gender-neutral names.

North Carolina Public Radio and the Raleigh News and Observer report that Dana Cope - president of the State Employees’ Association of North Carolina – was inadvertently included in the press release of women backing the New York senator.

Also on the list: Ashley Thrift, a Winston-Salem lawyer and chief of staff to former North Carolina Sen. Ernest Hollings.

The Clinton campaign told the News and Observer: "We are proud of the broad support Senator Clinton has from women... and men across North Carolina."

    PS–I like and respect CNN news and feel you are a top-notch station–I just wish yoyu would give Clinton the benefit of her experience whether you like her or not. You are the only station that can do that. Everyone watches you.

CLINTONS HAVE DONE ALOT FOR OUR COUNTRY ,BUT IT SEEMS HOW SO MANY FORGET TO GOOD THINGS IN THE 90S. I LIVED GOOD IN THE 90S .THERE WAS MANY JOBS AND PEACE THROUGH OUT THE COUNTRY. WE HAD NO IRAQ.AFTER BILL LEFT OFFICE ,THATS WHEN EVERYTHING WENT TO HELL. SO KEEP HATING YOU LITTLE PEOPLE THAT DONT HAVE ANY RESPECT.IF O.B.

    Man, if I was Hillary, I would fire whoever came up with that list.
    I bet you it was a man... or maybe a woman or a shemale or whatever.

    This woman is getting us used to too much "misspeaking." Hard to know what part of things she says or does is true or just a fabrication or a senseless effort to embellish her character.

    I don,t know how any american can vote for a person for such a high office with zero experience and put this country in the hands of a rookie. Obamma is just another fast talking crook. If American puts him in they are in for nightmare.

    C'mon CNN. Biased, biased reporting.

    Your title makes it sound like the women actually aren't supporting Clinton, not that they aren't actually women. You know this too. C'mon CNN.
