Vice chair of DNC calls for more Democratic debates

Democratic National Committee vice chair Tulsi Gabbard called on her party to have more presidential primary debates last night.

In an appeal on MSNBC, Gabbard said that people on the ground rom states across the country are calling for more debates, for greater transparency and engagement.

“We’ve got to have more opportunities for people to present their vision for our country, their plans, and to be held accountable for the positions that they’re taking and the path they’d like to take our country on,” she told MSNBC.

Both Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley have been critical of the DNC for allowing for just six debates, and banning candidates from participating in any other debates. Hillary Clinton says she’s open to the idea of more debates.
