Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) doesn’t seem to think that the Democratic Party needs a leader to be successful in retaking the House and Senate.
NBC’s Kasie Hunt asked Sen. Tim Kaine who the leader of the Democratic Party is at the moment.
“I think it’s old-time thinking to think you have to organize this in a pyramid with one person at the top,” Kaine responded.
Hunt pressed Kaine on this issue telling him, “I’m not asking about a pyramid, though. I’m saying who can actually take this and push it forward in a real way?”
Kaine dodged Hunt’s question instead, electing to talk about the difference between the House and Senate.
“Right now, Chuck Schumer, the Democratic Senate leader, is the most powerful Democratic official in the United States, and he is organizing us. But also saying, you know, we don’t need to just grab the reins away from the grass roots,” Kaine did eventually say.
