WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Clinton says Republicans aren't even talking about issues in their protracted race for the GOP presidential nomination.

She tells reporters in Minneapolis that the GOP candidates are "now running their campaigns based on insults. It's turned into a kind of one-upmanship on insulting."

The Democratic presidential front runner says she doesn't think it's appropriate.

She also says she is "disappointed" that Donald Trump did not disavow David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan in a weekend interview.

Clinton added that Trump "obviously" has done very well and "could be on the path" to the GOP nomination.

She spoke as voters in 11 states holding GOP contests went to the polls on Super Tuesday.

Trump has disavowed Duke, but did not do so when asked about the former KKK grand wizard in a CNN interview on Sunday. He subsequently did disavow Duke.
