FINNEY: “What I see in terms of the leadership here in Washington is kind of an array of voices and faces. Don't forget here’s Joe Manchin, don't forget Mark Warner of Virginia. So I think that is actually a good thing to say, 'Let’s open this up and hear from more parts of our party.' Maria, let’s be very clear about what the results of the election really told us. Hillary Clinton has 2.8 million more votes in the popular vote than Donald Trump so my question is, what about those people? We know that some 3 million or more people voted for third party candidates. What about those people? So when we talk about what did Americans want I think we need to look at the full picture and I think when we look at that full picture, I think the issue here is making sure that we hold Donald Trump accountable to the promises that he made to the American people, because I think what people wanted, it wasn’t just about anti-establishment, although I think that was very clear head wind, no question. At the same time people wanted to be heard."
