Donna Brazile: Bourbon Needed to Get Over 'Crushing Defeat'

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile said Tuesday midterm results were a “crushing defeat.” 

Brazile said, “It is a very tough reality, George, and I wish this was bourbon, but, of course, you don’t serve it in the morning. It was a crushing defeat, but, you know, I don’t cry after election day. I think the important thing is that the Democratic party has to look at what happened. We didn’t have a message. We didn’t turn out our voters. We had old recycled ideas that, yes, voters support raising the minimum wage, but that’s not an economic plan for the future. The president who oddly could have been an asset for the party, many of our candidates ran against the president or ran away from his policies and many of his policies proved popular even in red states like, again, raising the minimum wage. We found social issues that didn’t resonate because voters wanted more than just social issues.”
