As the presidential primary campaign heats up, the Democratic National Committee has refused to increase the number of debates between the candidates. As several of the candidates call for more, the voices are rising from state parties, advocates and voters. On Monday, members of the Vermont state Democratic Party became the latest to join the call. The man who put in place the debate limit is former DNC chair Howard Dean — the ex-governor of Vermont. Dean tells WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief that he expects well more than six debates in the end.
