eric-hovde-sunwest-bankMILWAUKEE, Wis. — Today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore released the following statement responding to Eric Hovde’s comments on Juneteenth:

“What Eric Hovde said on Juneteenth was abhorrent. If he thinks he knows Black culture because he’s been to Africa and runs homeless shelters, he’s got another thing coming. Hovde should spend a little less time with his California banker friends and a whole lot more time in Black communities in Wisconsin if he hopes to earn any support from Black voters.”

Read Eric Hovde’s comments below:

Ben 'Jammin’ Hooks: “Is there anything that you're going to take away from this that you didn't know about Black culture before that, you know of today.”

Eric Hovde: “Look, I've spent a lot of time in Black culture. And as Tory knows, I've spent a lot of time in places like Africa, because I have homeless shelters for abandoned kids and rescuing kids out of-out of the streets.”
