Bernie Sanders Won’t Defend the DNC

In an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) refused to defend the Democratic National Committee (DNC) from criticism that they are using campaign resources in an incompetent fashion.

Host Jake Tapper asked Sanders if he believes the DNC was wrong to not spend more money in the KS-04 special congressional election.

Sanders dodged answering the question directly, instead offering platitudes about grassroots activism and its ability to drive campaigns.

The former Democratic presidential candidate even offered mild criticism of the DNC: “It is true that the Democratic candidate lost. It is true that the Democratic Party should have put more resources into that election.”

Sanders then reverted to his usual attacks on the Republican Party’s platform.
