2020 Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson speaks her bid for the 2020 nomination, and the primary debate skills on ‘Fox News @ Night.’

CONCORD, NH – Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson has a message for the Democratic National Committee.

The best-selling spiritual author and philanthropist turned to the democratic presidential candidate says the DNC “job should be to help us [the candidates] get in front of the voters.”


With five weeks to go until the first of the DNC-organized presidential primary debates kick-off, the long-shot for the nomination, the presses, the debate stage, taking aim at the national party Committee that meets the criteria.

“I do not believe that the political parties are the gatekeepers to. You should be conduits and channels, which should serve the process, not the design of the process,” Williamson said Tuesday in an interview with Fox News, and during the election campaign in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire.

In February, the DNC are two possibilities, and was able to reach the candidates, the debate stage announced. Is published the registration of 1 per cent or more support in three qualifying national or early primary or caucus-voting-state polls between Jan. 1 and 14 days prior to the date of the first showdown. The other for the reception of donations of at least 65,000 unique donors and a minimum of 200 unique contributors per state in at least 20 States.

To keep each month, the DNC plans two debates on consecutive nights – with a 10-candidate debate, every night. But with a historic two-dozen candidates are now in the fight for the democratic nomination, low-polling candidates are concerned, they would have to meet both criteria to make the cut.


Williamson recently at the 65,000-donor criteria announced that their campaign reached. But she is not among the dozen contenders, the values are already reached the threshold.

“Well, it is a different tire. Well, we jump, a. I put in the CNN poll. I put in the Fox poll. I need space in a survey,” she said.

But the candidate railed against the process, which stresses that “this is what should be.”

“This is not what we should spend our time. Everyone is desperate, please, for those of 65,000. This is what is wrong with our democracy. The American people should decide. So you’re saying that you only ten people per night. Why? So 12 people have. To have 11 people. Why should it be pleaded such a big difference,” Williamson.

With debates on sequential nights, evenly and randomly divided into two groups, 10 of which it was intended, as the DNC was determined to avoid the controversial varsity and junior varsity debates, the RNC held for its extremely large field of candidates in 2016.

Was that the DNC wanted to appear more inclusive and open down-to-earth candidate, after the party, beat in the 2016 cycle for the attempt to stack the deck for the possible candidacy of Hillary Clinton at the expense of the upstart Bernie Sanders of Vermont sen.

“If the DNC had not let you put the finger on the scale, and the people decide, and all of them had already been clearly felt, whether Hillary or Bernie, that it is the people who had really decided, then I think the Democrats would not have, because so many people stayed home,” said Williamson.

And she hoped that the DNC’s “not the same kind of games, this time, and this boded nothing good that is happening now, with the 65,000 and these other gadgets.”

Note to the national party Committee, the role in the organization of the debates, Williamson asked: “why are the guys even there…I hope that this process truly democratic. Let the people decide.”
