LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock County Democratic Party held a news conference on Tuesday to discuss disappointment with Congressman Randy Neugebauer and other members of the U.S. Congress.

Neal Marchbanks is a Democrat who is challenging Congressman Neugebauer for his seat.

He says the American people, and the people of West Texas have had enough of the infighting in Washington. He says it is tearing our nation apart.

"The strategy of holding America hostage for a minority political agenda has failed," Marchbanks said. "As the shutdown continues, more and more governmental services are being discontinued."

Marchbanks says congress is playing Russian roulette with the creditworthiness of the United States by risking a financial crisis.
