Marianne Williamson unsuccessfully ran for the 2020 Democratic nomination three years ago. She was a longshot candidate then, up against big names in the party. Now, she is running again and is claiming the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is rigging the system.
On Saturday, March 4, Williamson formally launched her presidential campaign. The Associated Press reported the self-help author announced her White House bid in Washington, DC, in front of a crowd of more than 600 people. The 70-year-old ex-spiritual adviser of Oprah Winfrey told her supporters it was their job to “create a vision of justice and love that is so powerful” it overrides all the negative forces.
During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” host Jonathan Karl pointed out many of the people Williamson supports believe President Joe Biden should serve a second term. She told him that they were entitled to their opinion, but the American people deserve to choose who they want as their candidate. She said the DNC shouldn’t pick the candidate.
Karl asked Williamson if she’d participate in the New Hampshire primary. The candidate said that she would and slammed the national party, saying it shouldn’t be “rigging the system,” Williamson said. She told the host the DNC isn’t even trying to hide the fact that it is “swaying the primary season.”
Williamson’s agenda is very far to the Left. She has said she wants to cancel all college debt. In a campaign video, she attacked the country’s wealth disparity, saying, “$50 trillion of wealth has been transferred from the bottom 90% to the top 1%” of Americans. She called the current economic system “sociopathic.”
In the interview with Karl, the Democratic candidate expressed support for big government, saying a president can sidestep Congress and use executive powers to make the changes they want.
Just like in 2020, Williamson is being described as a longshot candidate.
