DNC Disarray: Vice Chair Undercuts Wasserman Schultz Over Debate Schedule [VIDEO]

by Steve Guest, Daily Caller, October 5, 2015

Hawaii congresswoman and a Democratic National Committee Vice Chair Tulsi Gabbard broke with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and called for more Democratic-sanctioned debates Monday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily.”

Gabbard, calling for more DNC sanctioned debates insisted, “We have to have more opportunities for people to present their vision for our country, their plans, and to be held accountable for the positions they’re taking and the path they’d like to take our country on.”

Steve Kornacki: Do you think it would be good for the Democratic Party if Joe Biden got in the race and ran?

Tulsi Gabbard: I think the more people we have stepping forward to generate more debate, to bring more ideas to our democracy and our Democratic presidential primaries, the better. On that note, I’ve been calling for more debates sponsored by the DNC. Right now, as you know, the DNC has only allowed for six sanctioned debates, and an exclusivity clause that said if any candidate participates in another debate, that’s not sanctioned by the DNC then you’re automatically blocked from joining the DNC sanctioned debates.

Kornacki:  Congresswoman, I’m sorry to interrupt, but you are a vice chair of the DNC. Debbie Wasserman Schultz publicly hasn’t shown any wiggling, but privately, are you seeing any more movement on getting more debates?

Gabbard: Well what I’m seeing is that more and more people on the ground from states all across the country are calling for more debates, are wanting to have this transparency and greater engagement in our democratic process, at a critical time, as they make the decision of who should be the next person to lead our country. We have to have more opportunities for people to present their vision for our country, their plans, and to be held accountable for the positions they’re taking and the path they’d like to take our country on.
