Dem Rep. Cedric Richmond: Democrats ‘Did a Poor Job in Messaging’ During Shutdown


Another House Democrat has come forward offering criticism of members of his own party following the deal today to end the shutdown.

According to CNN, during a closed-door meeting today Richmond expressed some frustration with Senate Democrats “getting their butts kicked”:

Wolf Blitzer asked Richmond if he did indeed say that.

“I’m not sure of the exact words,” he said, “but the sentiment that we did a poor job in messaging is correct. I think that we just failed to let the American people know exactly what’s going on here.”
