Democrat Candidate Sees Racism In Dem Leadership

Just when the DCCC’s week couldn’t get any worse, snubbed Democrat candidate for FL-13, the Rev. Manuel Sykes, is speaking out.

The Tampa Bay TimesAdam Smith asks Sykes what message the DCCC is sending African American candidates like Sykes by discouraging them to run for office?

“Well, what they’re saying is, stay in your place. It’s okay to run for local elections, state leg, but you’re not going to represent us in Washington. We have a place carved out for you.”
