Retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., ripped into the maligned Democratic National Committee, calling it "worthless."

"I believe one of the failures of the Democratic Party has been the Democratic National Committee," Reid told Nevada Public Radio. "The DNC, has been worthless. They do nothing to help state parties.

"So, I would hope that they would choose a chair of the Democratic Party who is a full-time person."

And choosing not to mention former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz by name, he added: "Not someone like we had with that congresswoman from Florida, who was a full-time congresswoman and a part-time chair of the DNC.

"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 – they should take a few states every election cycle, maybe three maybe four, and help them develop the infrastructure for good state party organization."

The Hill reported the top contenders of the DNC chair are Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., who has said he will resign from the House if he gets the post, and outgoing Labor Secretary Thomas Perez.
