Sen. Merkley: 'Call Me A Progressive'

During Tuesday night's debate with Monica Wehby, Senator Jeff Merkley proudly stood for the good that the word 'progressive' means.

Sit back and watch as Senator Merkley proudly wears the label of progressive.

Even more delicious? The question was to both of them, with the questioner asking Merkley if he was comfortable being called a progressive and Wehby being asked whether she was comfortable being associated with the Koch Brothers.

The video is captioned with the transcript for your viewing convenience. Enjoy.
