Amy Walter: What the ‘Bloomberg Campaign Is Counting on Is There Is No Perfect Candidate’

‘Democratic voters have been spending the last year telling us we want a candidate who can beat Donald Trump’

RUSH EXCERPT:

WALTER: “ — which is why they are not doing it anymore. Look, Democratic voters have been spending the last year telling us we want a candidate who can beat Donald Trump. And thus far they have not found that candidate. They keep splitting among the group of— of candidates who is selling themselves as the most electable. And, ultimately, those voters are going to have to decide. And this is what the Bloomberg campaign is counting on is there is no perfect candidate. There is no candidate that hasn’t had to apologize for things they have said or voted on or done. And so will you be willing in the name of electability, be willing to overlook and get past someone’s past, or will you set a bar that’s high enough that many of these candidates just are never going to make it?”
