The Democratic National Committee made a "bad decision" in refusing to hold a primary debate on Fox News, presidential candidate and former Rep. John Delaney, D-Md., said Thursday.
Delaney gave an interview on conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt's radio show Thursday, where he said he did not know why his fellow candidates for the Democratic nomination have avoided his show.
"I don't know," Delaney said. "It's the same reason why the DNC made, in my judgment, a bad decision not to allow Fox to do a debate."
DNC Chairman Tom Perez announced earlier this month the party would not hold a debate on Fox News in light of a report from The New Yorker that outlined the close relationship between the network and the Trump administration.
"Because, listen, I think we have to talk to everyone," Delaney said. "And in many ways, we have a much bigger obligation to talk to those who we don't agree with on things, right?"
He added later he thinks abolishing the Electoral College is "such a waste of time," because "it is never going to happen, so why not spend time talking about what we do to lower drug prices, how we improve the healthcare system, what we do to make sure we create jobs in parts of this country that have been left behind with huge concentration of investment in a relatively small number of places."
