At a meeting on Saturday, attendees at the West Virginia State Democratic convention voted unanimously to call for either the resignation or firing of Democratic National Committee head Debbie Wasserman Schultz, report The Hill.

Wasserman Shultz’s tenure at the DNC has been a major topic of conversation as the primary election season has come to an end, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders reportedly working on her ouster in his negotiations with rival Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

In the West Virginia resolution, Wasserman Shultz was criticized for what delegates termed “dissension and disarray in the Party.”

The resolution noted Wasserman Shultz has overseen the “worst electoral defeat in decades, “adding that the party “has lost more state legislative races than at any time since 1928.”

The Florida congresswoman was dinged for her management of the Democratic primary debate schedule and for “creating the perception in the public eye of favoring one candidate over others, which results in lowering trust in the Democratic Party.”

West Virginia Democrats also called for either elimination of superdelgates by the 2020 election or linking their votes to the results of state elections.

The crowd erupted with "No!"

"The only ones who mind are those characters... there's a lot of people up there - the press, right? Those are the only ones. The rest of them don't."

Published

President Donald Trump's campaign manager Bill Stepien sent a long, rambling letter to the Presidential Debate Commission attacking them for being all-in for Vice President Joe Biden and demanding that they change the debate topics.

Moderator Kristen Welker said that the topics they intend to discuss will be fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, issues facing American families, race in America, climate change, national security and leadership in general. Stepien complained that "national security" or "leadership" doesn't have enough to do with foreign policy as he would prefer.

Speaking at a rally in Prescott, Arizona, this Monday, President Trump gave an excuse as to why he's not matching Joe Biden when it comes to fundraising, saying that he'd be "the greatest fundraiser in history" -- all he'd have to do it call up every Wall Street firm and major company in the U.S.

"I would take in more money, but you know what? I don't want to do that, because if I do that I'm totally compromised -- because when they call me, you know, you're a loyal person and what happens, is, hey -- you'll do things..." Trump said.
