2020 Democrats seem to universally despise the DNC right now, and for good reason. dnc rule change
5 days before Michael Bloomberg announced his 2020 bid, he backed up a Brink’s truck to DNC HQ and unloaded. And now the DNC has changed their debate criteria to benefit Michael Bloomberg.

(Reminder: the DNC previously did not change the debate criteria to help Cory Booker, Julian Castro, or Andrew Yang or to hold a climate debate.)
DNC can explain this in a million ways, but the upshot is a late-game rule change that benefits one specific billionaire… not a great look. https://t.co/J57kZNZvNm

Cue the outrage from 2020 campaigns:
DNC changing the rules to benefit a billionaire. I much prefer Democrats being a grassroots party. And under Bernie Sanders, that's the way it will be. https://t.co/D7cTi7ObVN

The DNC changing its debate criteria to ignore grassroots donations seems tailor-made to get Mike Bloomberg on the debate stage in February. Having Americans willing to invest in your campaign is a key sign of a successful campaign. The people will win out in the end.

Let’s make one thing clear: @TheDemocrats decision to change the rules now to accommodate Mike Bloomberg and not changing them in the past to ensure a more diverse debate stage is just plain wrong.https://t.co/BoCVpahWpx

Trouble is also brewing among Democrat Party unity: While DNC Chair Tom Perez called AOC the “future” of the Democrat party, AOC “groans” at the prospect of a Joe Biden presidency and says that in any other country, her and Biden wouldn’t be in the same party.
Meanwhile, at the RNC, we had our best December in history, capping off our best-ever non-presidential year.
|December||Debt||Cycle To Date||Cash On Hand|
In December, the RNC raised 3 times the DNC, we’ve raised over 2.5 times the DNC haul cycle to date, and we have 7 times more cash on hand.
What are we doing with these resources?
Why does all this matter?
No matter which Democrat becomes their nominee, they will be battered and bruised from a long primary, forced to embrace the radical positions of their party. Their nominee will have no infrastructure or data to inherit from the broke DNC.
Both of those things take time and money of which the DNC doesn’t have..
Bottom Line: While Democrats and the DNC fight amongst themselves, the RNC continues to forge ahead, outpacing their field efforts, all in an effort to re-elect President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot in November
P.S. The DNC hasn’t learned from their 2016 ways: They’re trying to rig it against Bernie again.
New: A small group of DNC members is privately gauging support for a plan to weaken Bernie Sanders and head off a brokered convention, allowing super-delegates back in on 1st ballot https://t.co/ik8cuGmliY
