Roland Martin, host of “NewsOne Now” says no matter who won in the 2014 midterm elections don’t sit on your behind get involved, get engaged and hold elected officials accountable.

Martin said, “If your candidate lost, if your candidate won, it doesn’t matter. The election was the end of one process and the beginning of another. It is a failure if your are sitting at home right now mad, upset because of what happened on the federal level, on the state level, on the local level. The reality is you have to stand up and you have to be involved in the process.”

Martin went on to say it does not matter if a Democrat or Republican won, “Your job is to hold them accountable.”
