This is, um…Pryce-less.
As she fights for her political life, Ohio Republican Rep. Deborah Pryce distanced herself Thursday from the Iraq war, telling CNN Radio, “What’s happening in Iraq is not a direct reflection on me.”
The seven-term representative is the House Republican Caucus chairwoman, the fourth highest-ranking position in the House.
Pryce made the remark Tuesday in an interview at a Columbus, Ohio, factory. When pressed by CNN on whether her position as a House leader connected her to the volatile situation in Iraq, Pryce objected to the interruption of her remarks and said the interview was over.
“Thanks, I’m done,” Pryce said. She expressed frustration and walked away saying, “Maybe we’ll call you later when I’m feeling better.”
