Tim Ryan: DNC Winnowing the 2020 Field, ‘In Some Ways Artificially’

‘Donald Trump does not want to run against me and talk about the economy’


RYAN: "Well, I mean, it’s still early, too. Bill Clinton did not get into the race until October. And here it is August and the field is already being in some ways artificially winnowed by the Democratic National Committee. So, I mean, I think people on the ground are still looking, they're still interested. They want the economic message. They want someone who can win Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. I’m that guy. Donald Trump does not want to run against me and talk about the economy. He is trying to distract us. He is the distractor-in-chief on all of these other issues. I’ve been the candidate focused on the economy.”
