Emanuel Cleaver

"I think Newt Gingrich is the probably the most beatable of the candidates and will generate a large turnout for working class people and minorities because of his constant insults,” said Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Emanuel Cleaver (D-Missouri). “But because I plan to continue living in America, I’m concerned that a campaign with a man who makes such outlandish comments against poor people and, in some ways, minorities, will further divide a nation that has for the last three and a half years been extremely divided. It would be a horrible, horrible campaign, the consequences of which we’ll experience for the next decade.”
