Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has not gotten a single question on the campaign trail from voters about her private email setup, her campaign’s communications director said Wednesday.

After she spoke to reporters Tuesday in Nevada, Mrs. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner, said in response to a shouted question from a reporter about whether the issue of her private email system and server would linger: “Nobody talks to me about it other than you guys.”

“She’s happy to go and stand before the press, and she does that pretty much every day that she’s out, and take all [their] questions, and I think when you get to the point where you’re answering questions about wiping servers that you’re nearing the end of legitimate questions for her to answer,” Ms. Palmieri said.

Pressed repeatedly Tuesday on whether she had wiped clean the private server she set up, Mrs. Clinton quipped at one point: “What, like with a cloth or something?”
