"The DNC should not be rigging this system. They don't even pretend anymore," Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson said on ABC.
Democratic 2024 presidential candidate Marianne Williamson says she wants to debate President Joe Biden
for the party's nomination and claimed that the DNC is "rigging" the primary system in his favor.
Jonathan Karl asked Williamson on ABC "This Week" if she expected that Biden would debate her if the DNC held debates.
"He certainly should debate me. It's called democracy. And I'm running as well," Williamson responded.
Williamson, who launched a failed presidential campaign in 2020 that lasted just under a year, announced her second bid for the presidency on Saturday. Williamson also told NBC on Sunday that she thinks she can "beat DeSantis or Trump" in the 2024 general election.
The Democratic National Committee voted in February to move its first national primary out of New Hampshire and to South Carolina, a state which gave then-candidate Biden a huge boost during the 2020 Democratic primaries. Karl asked Williamson if she would still be competing in the New Hampshire primary election, which she said she would.
"This is a democracy. This is the thing," Williamson said. "The DNC should not be rigging this system. They don't even pretend anymore."
Karl asked Williamson to clarify that she meant "rigging the system" in favor of Biden, to which she responded; "They even admit that, Jonathan."
"They admit that. They know that the president did not do well in New Hampshire," Williamson said. "They know that New Hampshirites are very open to independent and more progressive voices."
A representative for the DNC did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
