Dem Rep Crowley: GOP Attacking Pelosi in Congressional Races Is ‘Sexist’

Wednesday at the weekly House Democratic press conference, House Democratic Caucus chairman Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) said Republican using House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) leadership to attack a Democratic opponent in congressional elections was “sexist.”

When asked about Democratic candidate Conor Lamb distancing himself from Pelosi Crowley said, “This election was not about Nancy Pelosi. Conor Lamb really localized the issue. The attempt here to nationalize it by the Republicans– I think they need to get a new game book. The attempts to use Nancy Pelosi, it’s failing them at this point.”

He added, “And I think quite frankly it’s sexist. So they need to move on from that.”
