Dean Phillips told us he would be different:
Q: “Would you stand up to Nancy Pelosi? Would you vote for her to be leader of the Democrats if you win this election?”
A: “No, it’s time for new leadership on both sides of the aisle.”
But with his very first vote in Congress, Dean Phillips caved to the party bosses and voted to support Nancy Pelosi for Speaker. The same failed leadership, the same insiders pulling the strings.
It takes most politicians years to sell out, but Dean Phillips broke his bond with voters on the very first day.
