(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a Democrat presidential candidate, slammed the Democratic National Committee this week for its official position on holding debates for its 2024 primary election.
Joe Biden’s formal announcement on Tuesday that he will run for president in 2024 was preceded on Monday by an announcement that the party will not hold debates for its presidential primary. The DNC’s decision came despite the fact that two candidates, had announced their campaigns for the party’s presidential nomination.
“The DNC, at this point, has taken the official position that there will be no debate, and I think that’s unfortunate,” Kennedy Jr. said in an interview with Breitbart News.
“You have so many Americans who are concerned about election integrity. We should be doing everything we can in our party to show that, you know, this is not rigged, rigged system. That it is actually democracy.”
Kennedy Jr. explained what democratic elections look like.
“[In democratic elections] people can run and that they can get to debate and that the public is gonna be able to see them,” he said. “[But,] they’re [the Democratic National Comittee] doing kind of the opposite.”
Kennedy claimed that the DNC abandoning its traditional primary election order creates suspicion among voters, specifically citing the committee’s decision to bump New Hampshire, a state where Kennedy Jr. noted that Biden had come in fifth place.
“And now they’re gonna say — they’re saying that they’re going to completely remove the delegates from New Hampshire,” he said.
Fellow long-shot Democrat candidate, Marrianne Williamson, also sounded off about the DNC stealing the nomination.
“The DNC “plans no primary debates,” she tweeted. “As though there simply ARE no other candidates … no other ideas we should discuss about ways to win in 2024, or other ideas we should discuss about ways to repair the country. Too many people are too smart to accept this.”
