MSNBC’s Joy Reid moderated the event, but failed to ask why six of the candidates skipped the women’s marches held across America on Saturday.
All seven candidates running to be the next chair of the Democratic National Committee participated in a debate hosted by Democracy in Color on Monday. MSNBC’s Joy Reid moderated the event and asked the candidates about a variety of topics but failed to ask why six of the candidates skipped the women’s marches held across America on Saturday. Instead, they all chose to attend David Brock’s mega-donor retreat in Aventura, Fla.
Hillary Clinton struggled among white, college-educated women – a key voting group in 2016 that turned out en masse at Saturday’s marches.
The only person to even talk about the women’s march was South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who was also the only candidate who participated in Saturday’s demonstrations.
Democratic Party leaders have praised the women’s march as an example of how the party can still organize, but it doesn’t seem like those running for party chair cared enough to attend the march, nor do the moderator think it a big enough issue to ask why they did not attend.
