J. C. Watts Says...


Statement of Representative J.C. Watts, Jr. (R-Okla.)

Chairman, House Republican Conference

WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chairman J.C. Watts, Jr. (R-Okla.) issued the following statement today:

“As the incoming majority leader already said about himself, Senator Lott went too far. He told me he would like to have his words back, but I took his comments as complimentary humor that often accompanies personal tributes.

“His comments were as serious as the venue at which they were delivered – a birthday party.

“We should accept his apology, get out of our offices and do some holiday shopping.”
