Republican Licking County Commissioner Duane Flowers is apologizing after The Newark Advocate newspaper quoted him as saying Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton "should be hanging from a tree." Flowers says he made the remark during a casual conversation with two other officials and a reporter  that he thought was off the record. Licking County Democratic Party Chair Grace Cherrington says Flowers' remarks promote "violence and divisiveness."
