Pro-life leader defends GOP amid Zika fight

"Who were simply willing to let there be no mosquito control, no vaccine development funds," Johnson claims, "unless these funds were not constrained in the way that the Republicans wanted to constrain them."

Johnson says that doesn't mean Republicans caved on the issue and calls GOP leadership "outstanding" on the issue.
