Dem. Rep. Rangel: We Need to Save the GOP for the Good of the Two-Party System, the Country

Sunday on “The Rita Cosby Show” on WABC Radio, Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) said that the GOP needs to be saved in order to have a properly functioning two-party system.

“My concern is the destruction or the imploding of the Republican Party. They’re so torn apart, and as partisan as I am, I really think the salvation of this republic is the two-party system,” Rangel explained. “Democrats need another party in order for people like me to see what we think is best.”

He later added, “If there’s no opposition, if there’s no challenge, then this is not the country that our forefathers were thinking about. So we have to have healthy political parties. The two-party system is just as important as having a Democratic party… to me.”
