A candidate for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee tore into his own party during a candidate forum in Baltimore on Saturday, saying his party needs to "grow up" and get past attacking President Donald Trump at every turn.
New Hampshire Democratic Party chairman Raymond Buckley chided Democrats at the forum for worrying about Trump, rather than worrying about the needs of the American people.
"Telling the voters that, 'Oh, our opponent is offensive.' When you're worrying about your d*mn paycheck, when you're worrying about your job, when you're worrying about where you're going to live, if your kids are ever going to go to school," Buckley began. "They don't really give a crap if the president is an insult dog."
"The reality is we did not offer a positive message to anyone I'm related to. We did not offer a message to my neighbor, we did not offer a message to the people in Indiana or Ohio or Pennsylvania or Kentucky," he continued. "What we did was say, 'Oh, how offensive.'"
"Grow up!" he told the crowd. "That's not reality for most of America."
With less than two weeks to go until DNC members convene in Atlanta to elect their next chairperson, former Department of Labor Secretary Tom Perez looks to be the most likely candidate to win the position. He served in Barack Obama's Cabinet.
According to Politico, 10 people are currently in the running for the chairmanship. The next chairperson will be elected on Feb. 23.
