During an interview on Meet the Press, former Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb (D-VA) told NBC’s Chuck Todd that the Democratic party had moved “very far to the left” in the past few years.
“The Democratic Party over the past five or six years has moved very far to the left,” Webb told Todd.
Webb pointed to the Democratic Party moving away from Jefferson-Jackson dinners as an example of the party moving further to the left.
“When you can’t have a Jefferson-Jackson dinner, which was the primary celebratory event of the Democratic Party for years because Jefferson and Jackson were slaveholders. They were also great Americans in their day. Something just different has happened to the Democratic Party,” Webb told Todd.
Webb also said that the Democratic Party as a whole right now doesn’t have a message and is focused too much on identity politics.
