Keith Ellison: ‘Women Are Dying’ Because Democrats Are Losing Elections

‘We don’t have the right to lose a damn election’

DNC Vice Chair: Women Are Dying Because Democrats Are Losing Elections (NTK Network)

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Vice Chair Keith Ellison (D-MN) claimed during a speech Friday that maternal mortality in America is on the rise because the Democratic Party is losing elections.

“Did you know that in Missouri and in Texas and maybe other places maternal mortality has risen?” Ellison asked attendees of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee National Candidate Training forum. “Women are dying because we are losing elections. We don’t have the right to lose a damn election. We have to win.”

While Ellison is correct that maternal mortality in America is on the rise, there is no evidence to support that this is because Democrats aren’t winning elections.
