“Howard Dean, you know, Howard Dean was there for that 50-state strategy, but here’s the issue: Howard Dean is also on record maligning young people and Millennials. Telling those Bernie folks they just need to get in line and maligning Bernie Sanders. And that is not what we need.
And in my opinion we don’t need white people leading the Democratic party right now. The Democratic party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in leadership and throughout the staff, at the highest levels. From the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC.
I think we need to have a robust discussion about this and I think we need to hear more from all the candidates. Jamie Harrison of South Carolina, he’s great, too. He’s done real party building, but everybody doesn’t necessarily know Jaime and they want to know what it is he stands for. So I want to hear more from everybody. I want to hear from the Millennials and the brown folks.”
