CNN's Van Jones Was 'Heartbroken' Over Early Election Results

CNN’s Van Jones was disappointed by early results on Election Day—so much so that he called the fact that Republicans won key Senate seats “heartbreaking.”

“This is heartbreaking,” Jones said. “It’s heartbreaking. The hope has been that the antibodies would kick in. That this sort of infestation of hatred and division would draw a response from the American people, really in both parties, to say, ‘no.' And ‘no more.’”

He continued: "That does not seem to be happening tonight. It’s not a blue wave, it’s still a blue war. We’ve got to continue the fight forward. I think that sense of helplessness that has really fueled a lot of this outrage and outpouring tomorrow from Democrats may still be there tomorrow, even if we have the House.

Later in the evening he seemed more upbeat about some of the results, highlighting the diversity among some of the candidates who won, calling it a “rainbow wave.”

“It is the end of one-party rule in the United States, thank God, and the beginning of a new Democratic Party -- younger, browner, cooler, more women, more veterans,” he said.

"A new generation of people is now a part of the American political process. A lot of younger people, a lot of women...they didn't get everything they wanted but they got a lot done. Those forces now have been unleashed in the country,” he added.
