WATCH: Larry Elder says Dem push for D.C. Statehood is all about “power”

Moments ago, appearing with Sean Hannity on Fox News, radio host Larry Elder said the Democrats push for D.C. statehood is all about power.

Earlier in the day, the Democrat controlled House has passed a bill to make D.C. the 51st state from a pure party line vote of 216 to 208. All Republicans rejected the bill.

House Speaker Pelosi argued “Statehood for the District of Columbia is about showing respect for our democracy.”

“It’s well past the time to grant them the rights that they have been fighting for and that they deserve,” she added.
