Rep. Denver Riggleman, R-Va., on Sunday said the nation’s two-party system “is really failing the American people right now,” lamenting divisions exacerbated by “the spread of misinformation.”

In an interview on NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” Riggleman decried the embrace of the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory, including by Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican House candidate in Georgia.

"I think we're looking at the spread of misinformation,” he said of politics, adding, “I think we’ve lost our way…I just wish we can stick to policy.”

"I’m a Republican... a constitutional conservative,” he said. But he said “the way the GOP is going in Virginia, it’s really hard for me.”

“The two party system is really failing the American people right now,” he warned.

Riggleman said his own 5th district, which includes Charlottesville, is “so diverse.”

In “our district… Republicans are different from north to south,” he said, adding, “this is a swing district…in a Blue state.”

And he acknowledged there were divides in the Republican Party.

“The battlefield … has gotten very personal,” he said.
