McAuliffe: There Isn’t a Single Leader of the Democratic Party


On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Governor Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) declined to name a single leader of the Democratic Party.

McAuliffe said that there are “many leaders of the Democratic Party.”

When pressed for a name, McAuliffe said he wouldn’t, and then stated, “I’ll say the governors who are leading their states, creating jobs, building infrastructure, building an education system that works.” He continued by praising “the folks on Capitol Hill who are doing what they’re doing. But, you know, we need some action out of Washington to help us compete on a global basis. And today, we are not seeing anything out of Washington. It is broken.”

McAuliffe reiterated that he doesn’t think there is one leader of the Democratic Party at the moment.
