Avenatti Slams Establishment Democrats: ‘People Are Very Excited About My Potential Candidacy’

‘We need new leadership’

EXCERPT:

AVENATTI: "Well I’m doing a lot for the party. I’m traveling the country, going to sold-out venues, night after night, raising money for Democrats, getting out the votes. You know,  I’ve faced enthusiastic crowds everywhere I’ve gone. I was just in South Carolina for two days. I’ve been to Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, Iowa. People are very excited about my potential candidacy. And look, let’s be honest, a lot of these establishment Democrats, if they had done their job in 2008, 2016, we wouldn’t be in the position that we’re in. It’s time to turn the party upside down. We need new leadership. And the only way we’re going to beat Donald Trump is by engaging in smash-mouth politics, period."
