    US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has revealed the details of a drinking competition she had with fellow senator John McCain.

    Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, has revealed that she and John McCain held a competition to see who could drink the most vodka, which she considers to have ended in a tie.

    When asked, “Have you ever won a drinking competition?” Clinton replied that Republican Senator John McCain had challenged her to one when they were part of the same congressional delegation.

    “We have our political differences but we sat there drinking vodka, until we both, I think, agreed to withdraw in honourable fashion, having reached the limits that either of us should have had.” 

    ​The question and answer tweeted by Hillary’s campaign team.

    “I consider it a tie, yes,” said Hillary, who holds a clear lead over second-placed Bernie Sanders in opinion polls that predict the winner of the Democratic presidential nomination for the White House in 2016.

    Republican Senator John McCain was the Republican presidential nominee in the 2008 presidential election, but lost to Barack Obama.
