Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) said on Monday that the DNC made a mistake in choosing not to hold a primary debate on Fox News, even if Fox is “largely an instrument of the right wing.”
“I don’t think it was the right decision,” Himes told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, pointing out that the network is watched by “millions and millions” of Americans.
The Connecticut congressman argued that if the DNC has to chance to pit its platform of universal health care and retirement security against “whatever nonsense is on the other side,” Democrats will come out looking stronger than the GOP.
“I don’t care what channel you’re on, we will have the appealing idea,” said Himes.
