Brazile: Democratic Wins a Reflection on Trump

(MSNBC/"Morning Joe")

By    |   Wednesday, 08 November 2017 10:24 AM

Democratic wins in several races across the country left former Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile quoting the "Godfather of Soul," James Brown, Wednesday morning — while calling her party's wins a reflection on President Donald Trump.

"All the seats that were flipped last night, to quote the 'Godfather of Soul,' I feel good," Brazile told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. 

"I feel good because for the first time in two election cycles, especially off-year election cycles, Democrats are holding their own. This was a blue wave."

But most of all, the wins were about Trump, Brazile insisted.

"He is going to be on the ballot until 2020 unless something happens," she said. "People are sick and tired of his divisive politics."

Brazile said the wins did not mark a national party investment in down-ballot races, but instead marked an effort from grassroots Democrats taking back their local offices by restoring Democrats to their city councils, sheriff’s departments and more.

"Grassroots Democrats are taking back the party and they're going to take back the country next year," said Brazile. "There was a 5 percent increase in turnout, a big issue for Democrats in off-season elections."

The races also marked a return to diversity and inclusion, said Brazile.

"When you see a black woman winning a mayoral seat in Charlotte, North Carolina, when you see the kind of support and turnout in Maine . . . this is the future of the Democratic Party."
