Dem Official: 'Significant Extent the Republican Base' Is 'Animated by Racism'

DCCC Chair: ‘Significant Extent the Republican Base’ Is ‘Animated by Racism’ (National Review Online)

While “not all” Republicans are racist, a good portion of them are, according to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman Steve Israel (D., N.Y.).

“To a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism and that’s unfortunate,” he told CNN’s Candy Crowley on Sunday.​ Crowley responded by saying these claims, as well as the “War on Women” attacks, all sound like “election-year strategy” to try to rally the Democratic base.
