DescriptionIt was a biting remark by the Democratic National Committee chairman.

"You know, the Republicans, I think, merged with the Tea Party, and in many instances they're finding out it's the Donner Party," Tim Kaine told CNN's Candy Crowley last Sunday, "because it's knocking off Republicans left and right."
