A large crowd greeted Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schutlz Saturday morning with demands for more debates, heckling her as she took the stage at the New Hampshire Democratic Party convention in Manchester.
Audible boos could be heard as those in the crowd held up signs demanding “more debates.” Wasserman-Schutlz, described as “flustered” by a conservative organization that posted video of the incident, tried to quell the crowd by uniting them against Republicans.
“Don’t you worry! We will be taking it to the Republicans just like we do every single election cycle! And I will tell you, if you got a look at them the other night, I want to make sure that the American people get a good close look at just how extreme the Republican field of candidates — they outdo crazy every time they step out on that stage,” she said.
That didn’t work as the crowd started chanting “we want debates!”
Washerman-Schultz then addressed the issue head on.
“What’s more important, drawing a contrast with Republicans, or arguing about debates?” she asked. “Let’s focus on our mission at hand. Enough is enough! Enough is enough! We have a job to do.”
