Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) on Tuesday walked back her comment on having a "conversation" about letting felons vote in prison, saying she believes that murderers and terrorists should be "deprived of their rights."

CNN's senior correspondent Jeff Zeleny reported on Twitter Tuesday night that Harris walked back her remark about Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I., Vt.) position to allow felons, including the Boston Marathon bomber, to vote.

"Clean-up in the Town Hall Aisle," Zeleny tweeted. "A day after saying she welcomed a ‘conversation' about inmates voting in jail, @KamalaHarris said today: ‘Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists should be deprived of their rights? Yeah, I do. I’m a prosecutor.'"

Harris, who is running for president, attended a CNN town hall in Manchester, N.H., on Monday night, where she was asked about Sanders's contention that even terrorists should be allowed to vote.
