With Super Tuesday voting underway, former Interim Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Donna Brazile had some harsh words for GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on America’s Newsroom, telling McDaniel to “go to hell:”
Brazile’s unhinged comments were in response to McDaniel discussing the prospect of a brokered DNC convention, which would likely put Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) at a disadvantage:
“I don’t see anybody getting out soon, and its leaning toward a potential brokered convention, which will be rigged against Bernie if those superdelegates have their way on that second vote,” McDaniel told Sandra Smith and Ed Henry.

just told @GOPChairwoman to "Go to hell" for citing @nytimes
reporting about superdelegates lining up against Bernie.

The GOP chairwoman responded to Brazile's comments:
Chairwoman McDaniel’s analysis is not unfounded. Superdelegates are typically establishment figures and party leaders, and vote only on the second ballot if no candidate reaches the first-round threshold. Establishment Democrats do not favor a Sen. Sanders’ nomination, just as they did not in 2016; McDaniel got it exactly right.
The tensions seem to be rising with the Democrats as the prospect of having Bernie Sanders as their nominee becomes more of a likely scenario.
It’s ok, @donnabrazile.— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) March 3, 2020
I’d be having a bad day too if my party was still hopelessly divided.
Talk of a brokered convention and the DNC trying to stop Bernie obviously hit a little close to home.
