Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) blamed the non-stop talk about Russia for Jon Ossoff’s loss Tuesday in the Georgia special election in his appearance on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’.
Senator Murphy appeared on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ to talk about Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s 6th District and the future of the Democrat party.
