Here’s yet another sign of the Democratic Party’s demise. Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., one of the most esteemed civil rights leaders of the past 50 years, says Democrats are losing too many white voters, The Hill reports.

Lewis, white, voters, Georgia, Democrats, losingWhite voters supported Republican candidates by a margin of almost 2-to-1 in last year’s elections, helping the GOP pick up 22 House seats in the states that make up the Old Confederacy.

"We've got to go all out and get white voters, especially white men, to come back to the Democratic Party," Lewis tells The Hill. "I just think it's important for the Democratic Party to roll out and try to reveal itself and not become a party that is split along racial lines."
