LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By Henry Rodgers
Ohio Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan attacked his own party Wednesday night on CNN, calling the party’s brand “toxic” and criticizing House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
“I don’t think people in the Beltway are realizing just how toxic the Democratic Party brand is in so many parts of the country,” Ryan told Don Lemon on “CNN Tonight.”
Ryan then gave an “honest answer” on whether Pelosi is more toxic than President Donald Trump.
“The honest answer is in some areas of the country — yes, she is,” Ryan responded. “I think that in certain areas, like in some of these special election districts, it doesn’t benefit our candidates to be tied to her. ”
