By Christian Datoc (DC) – Former Gov. Martin O’Malley hammered the Democratic National Committee’s decision to host four — and only four — debates leading up to the primary while speaking at the DNC Summer Meeting Friday
“Four debates and only four debates — we are told, not asked — before voters in our earliest states make their decision,” said O’Malley. “This sort of rigged process has never been attempted before. One debate in Iowa. That’s it. One debate in New Hampshire. That’s all we can afford.”
Over the past month, O’Malley has been critical of the DNC’s apparent, early anointment of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the party’s nominee. On Thursday he said that Democrats were making, “a big mistake… as a party to circle the wagons around the inevitable front-runner,” and it would appear DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is not the biggest fan of O’Malley’s criticism.
