The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is refusing to play Republicans in the annual Congressional softball game this year.

The DNC’s softball boycott “stunned” the Republican National Committee (RNC), The Daily Caller reports:

“Despite being a time-honored tradition going back many years, the DNC is refusing to play the RNC at this year’s annual softball game.

“RNC sources tell The Daily Caller that they were ‘stunned’ when Democrats abruptly pulled out of the good-natured game between leadership and staffers at opposing political organizations.”

RNC Chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel took to Twitter to voice her disappointment regarding the news, simply calling it “a shame.”
