Rep. Lance on Maxine Waters: ‘We Need a Greater Civility on Both Sides’

‘I am critical of what Maxine Waters said’

LANCE: "I am critical of what Maxine Waters said. I know the congresswoman. And I have served with her on the financial services committee before I moved to the energy and commerce committee but I thought those were very unfortunate remarks. As you know, Steve, I lead by example. I try to be civil with everyone, with those who support me, with those who do not support me. I have been critical of the president where I do not believe he has been civil. And I'm certainly critical of the situation regarding the restaurant in northern Virginia and with statements back and forth. I think we need greater civility on both sides. And that is the way I have always conducted myself, and it's the way I will continue to conduct myself."
