Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., said Thursday that former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's greatest mistake was not campaigning heavily enough in three battleground states.
"I think not recognizing that we had to have a presence in states we took for granted," Crowley, who chairs the Democratic Caucus, said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," when asked what was Clinton's biggest mistake that Democrats can learn from. "Whether it's Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania."
Crowley added on Thursday, "Real concerns about the future of Pennsylvania potentially becoming a right-to-work state after this election. Hope that doesn't happen, and it shouldn't have happened in the first place.
"I think places like West Virginia, look at the map and you can see where we once were strong and we now have little or no presence at all," Crowley said. "I think that's what we need to be focusing on."
Clinton said at the Code Conference in California Wednesday that she takes "responsibility for every decision I made, but that's not why I lost," according to CBS News. She cited "unprecedented" media coverage and "weaponized information" from fake news sources as strong forces in her loss.
"Over the summer we went and told anyone we could find that the Russians were messing with the election and we were basically shooed away," she continued. "We couldn't get the press to cover it."
