Only Calif. Republican To Schedule Town Halls Over Break Met With Raucous Crowd
One attendee told Rep. Doug LaMalfa, "May you die in pain."
GOP Members Face Tough Town Halls At Home
As town halls replace committee meetings during this last stretch of summer, Republican congressmen find themselves facing increasingly critical and at times raucous crowds of voters. Rep. Doug LaMalfa represents a California district that he won by 15 percent and voted overwhelmingly for President Donald J. Trump in 2016, but none of that was apparent Monday as the Republican congressman heard from his harshest critics. Over the course of the hour-long town hall, LaMalfa was on the defensive as constituents booed and asked for his resignation. One man told the congressman, “May you die in pain.” (Stewart, 8/8)
