GOP Rep. Tells Chris Matthews He Is ‘Not Afraid of Steve Bannon’

Congressman Ryan Costello (R- PA) appeared on MSNBC tonight and Chris Matthews asked him about Steve Bannon‘s war on the GOP establishment.

Bannon said rather blatantly last night he’s declaring war on the establishment and he’s planning to target a ton of Republicans up for reelection.

Costello told Matthews he’s not worried about that and talked about serving his constituents.

But Matthews pressed and asked him directly, “Are you afraid of Steve Bannon?” Costello said, “No.”

Matthews kept pushing and got Costello to directly say, “I’m not afraid of Steve Bannon.”
