On Friday, Democratic National Committee Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) spoke at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee's National Candidate Training and had some bold words for the audience when he took the stage.

“Did you know that in Missouri and in Texas and maybe other places, maternal mortality has risen?” he asked the audience.

Ellison added:

“Women are dying because we are losing elections. We don't have the right to lose a damn election. We have to win. We have to win.”


Ellison was also on the hot seat after he tweeted out a picture of acting Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Mick Mulvaney's office and said that Mulvaney claims he's “Mr. Transparency” but has frosted glass on the walls in his building.

“How is that transparent?” Ellison asked his followers.

Thousands of people responded accordingly:
