Plouffe: White House to ‘enlist’ public support in gun control debate
David Plouffe, a senior adviser to President Obama, said Sunday that the White House will try to “enlist” the public in the gun control debate.
Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Plouffe noted that Obama’s broad package of proposals to stem gun violence will need the support of the American people to move on Capitol Hill.
“We are trying to enlist the American people in these debates. The only way change is going to really happen and make progress is with the American people,” Plouffe said. “They need to be involved at the center of this and pushing here.”
