CNN Correspondent: Dems Might Need to ‘Alienate Some White Voters’ to Gain Black Votes

Justin Caruso, CNN, November 7, 2017


CNN White Correspondent Abby Phillip said on “The Lead With Jake Tapper” Tuesday, “Virginia is the kind of state that highlights the key problem for Democrats right now, which is that in order to bring out African-American voters you might have to alienate some white voters.”

She continued, “It’s a purple state. It’s a place where Democrats still have to appeal to some white voters. So that balancing act is really difficult for them to strike right now.”
