O’Malley: DNC Trying to Cut Off Debate, Turn Primary Into Coronation

Tuesday on Concord News Radio’s “New Hampshire Now,” Democratic presidential candidate former Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD) said the Democratic National Committee, by limiting sanction primary debates to six, is “trying to cut off debates and turn our primary into a coronation rather than an exchange of ideas.”

O’Malley said, “Until we start having debates, we are instead going to see this year’s inevitable front runner answering character questions from the nineteen people running for the Republican nomination and their Fox News Network. It’s really really short-sighted of the DNC, and I think all of us as candidates have a responsibility not to abide by this silly restriction that New Hampshire only gets to have one debate before the primary. What the hell have we come to as the Democratic Party that we are trying to cut off debates and turn our primary into a coronation rather than an exchange of ideas?”
