Jane Sanders, wife to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), said Thursday that GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has a point when he says the nomination process for both parties need to be fixed.

“Now, Donald Trump has a point. The electoral process — the way it is conducted now in both parties is not good, it is not democratic, it is not smart,” Sanders said on Fox Business Network. “We want to change the electoral process by having there be open primaries, same day registration. If independents could vote there is no doubt that the results in the democratic process at least would be very different.”

Both Jane and Bernie Sanders have complained about the nomination process and how delegates are awarded. Trump his criticisms a step further, saying the process is “rigged” and “biased.”

Jane Sanders also again railed against the superdelegate system.

“It doesn’t seem fair that superdelegates can play such an outsized role. I mean, you know, we learned in a democracy one person, one vote. Evidently not in the primary system,” she said.
