Congressional candidate Max Rose proposes a new vision for Democratic Party leadership

Democratic congressional candidate Max Rose is calling out politicians on both sides of the aisle for prioritizing their own selfish political careers over the needs of the American people. On “Salon Talks,” Rose called for bringing trust back to the Democratic Party with new blood and new leadership at the top.

“If you ran some significant democratic policy positions, investments in infrastructure, investments in our healthcare system so that we can lower overall costs while expanding coverage, supporting unions, doing something about rampant gun violence in a district like mine, there'd be resounding support for them,” he said. Rose is facing off against Republican Rep. Dan Donovan in New York’s 11th Congressional District this November.
