Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Virginia), who is leading her congressional race by a thread, has reportedly blamed the Democrat Party for losing elections "we shouldn't have lost" due to embracing radical ideas like Defund the Police.
During a conference call between Democrats discussing the results of various 2020 elections, Spanberger claimed she nearly lost her race (she's won by a few thousand votes) because of an attack ad connecting her to the Defund the Police movement.
"Don't say socialism ever again," the congresswoman said on the call, according to Washington Post reporter Erica Werner.
"We need to be pretty clear … it was a failure. It was not a success," she added about election night.
