Syracuse—U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna took his own party to task today, saying the Republican Party is too willing to accommodate its most extreme members.

"I have to say that I'm frustrated by how much we — I mean the Republican Party — are willing to give deferential treatment to our extremes in this moment in history," he told The Post-Standard editorial board.
