House Democratic Caucus chairman Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) cried sexism for republicans using Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) poor leadership to hurt a Democrat in the congressional elections.
Crowley was asked about Democratic candidate Conor Lamb distancing himself from Pelosi, to which Crowley responded, “This election was not about Nancy Pelosi. Conor Lamb really localized the issue. The attempt here to nationalize it by the Republicans– I think they need to get a new game book. The attempts to use Nancy Pelosi, it’s failing them at this point.”
“And I think quite frankly it’s sexist. So they need to move on from that.”
