Outgoing Senator Harry Reid unleashed a torrent of criticism against the Democratic National Committee and it’s erstwhile leader, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, blaming them for their historical losses this election.
From the Hill:
“I believe one of the failures of Democratic Party has been the Democratic National Committee, the DNC, has been worthless,” Reid told Nevada Public Radio in an interview published Wednesday.
“They do nothing to help state parties. That should be the main goal they have. I developed everything in Nevada on my own. Their help was relatively meaningless.”
Reid then verbally assailed the former DNC Chair without naming her specifically:
“We need a full time DNC chair and what they should do — they can take my model if they want — it’s not rocket science. It doesn’t take a lot of brain power to figure out what needs to be done,” Reid said.
“They should take a few states every election cycle, maybe three maybe four, and help them develop the infrastructure for good state party organization.”
Harry Reid might look to his own political impotence instead, as he tried to rip into Trump during the election calling him a “racist,” a “notorious con artist” and a “leech,” and still suffered a historic loss for the Democrats. Facing such a failure, he must be simply grasping at straws – he also blamed Comey’s letter for Hillary’s loss, and then turned around and said Trump isn’t that bad after all.
