Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. is claiming that the Democratic party chose to have Democratic debates on weekend nights to reach as many American voters as possible. Yeah, she really said that.
“I did my best to make sure, along with my staff and along with our debate partners, to come up with a schedule that we felt was going … to maximize the opportunity for voters to see our candidates,” Wasserman Schultz said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”
The embattled congresswoman from Florida once again defended the significantly lower number of debates Democrats have scheduled compared to Republicans. By now it’s an “Open Secret” that the schedule was crafted to keep the public from learning more about the other lesser-known and lesser-rich, thereby protecting Hillary Clinton’s name recognition advantage.
As she has maintained in the past, Schultz said adding more debates to the schedule would “take away” from voters’ being able to see the three candidates at local events, even though it is 2016 and politicians have become used to traveling where ever they need to be to be seen by the most possible people. Even if that were true though, she somehow believes that putting them in front of millions of viewers is less valuable than having them on the campaign trail. What’s perhaps even more alarming is that she expects people to believe that line of reasoning.
