Earlier tonight, after results came in that didn’t look too good for Democrats, CNN’s Van Jones remarked that “this is heartbreaking.” After CNN projected the Democrats will take the House, he was more optimistic.
“My heart has been restored,” he told Anderson Cooper. “It is the end of one-party rule in the United States, thank God, and the beginning of a new Democratic party. Younger, browner, cooler, more women, more veterans.”
He talked about some of the big Democratic successes tonight and said, “It may not be a blue wave, it’s a rainbow wave.”
Jones did go on to say that his heart hurts by Andrew Gillum‘s loss in Florida, Beto O’Rourke‘s loss in Texas, and a potential Stacey Abrams loss in Georgia, but he added, “Mathematically we had a wave.”
