Tim Ryan: DNC Winnowing the 2020 Field, ‘In Some Ways Artificially’

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Velshi & Ruhle,” 2020 presidential candidate Representative Tim Ryan (D-OH) stated that the 2020 Democratic field is “being, in some ways artificially, winnowed by the Democratic National Committee.”

Ryan said, “Bill Clinton did not get into the race until October. And here it is August, and the field’s already being, in some ways artificially, winnowed by the Democratic National Committee. So, I mean, I think people on the ground are still looking. They’re still interested. They want the economic message. They want someone who can win Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. I’m that guy.”
