As Thursday’s GOP primary debate solidified, criticism mounted against the Democrat party for its glaring lack of traction on any substantive plans for its primary debates.
Former Gov. Martin O’Malley took advantage of the opportunity in an interview with The Hill to pin the blame directly on the DNC as a coordinated effort to give Hillary Clinton a campaign advantage.
Reporting that he had raised the issue with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz, O’Malley argued that party “insiders” are attempting to limit the number of Democrat debates in hopes of shielding Hillary from competition.
Referring to the mere six debates — the GOP has scheduled nine — O’Malley charged the party with being undemocratic and even suggested that it would dispense with the debates altogether if it could.
O’Malley further criticized Hillary for dodging important issues and for a “lack of positions” as the impetus for her drop in the polls in recent weeks.
Despite a fervent campaign schedule, O’Malley remains in single digits in nearly every poll taken since his announcement in May.
