The Democratic National Convention has announced their qualifying candidates for the primary debates, and one candidate is very upset about his disqualification.
Montana Gov. Steve Bullock was unable to meet the 1 percent threshold for entry into the debates, but the campaign disputed their disqualification, saying that one poll discounted by the DNC should allow their candidate in.
In a humorous video released by the campaign Friday in response to the disqualification, a Bullock supporter calls the elimination “horses**t.”
“Yeah I heard the news. The DNC is saying Governor Bullock doesn’t qualify for the debates,” the man says, sitting next to his dog on the tailgate of his pickup.
“That’s horses**t!” he says.
“You don’t need to be from Montana to know that anybody who wins by four in the same election that Trump won by twenty is doing something right here,” he adds. “He doesn’t qualify, really?”
“What are you waiting for?” he asks after a few seconds of silence. “Go and donate!”
The DNC announced that twenty candidates met the threshold and will appear in their first debates. Three other candidates failed to make the cut: Rep. Seth Moulton (Mass.), Miramar, Fla., Mayor Wayne Messam, and former Sen. Mike Gravel (Alaska).
