Capitol Report: DNC’s Tom Perez embraces clashes on policy at debate: ‘Nobody was putting silly nicknames on people’

After Wednesday’s Democratic debate featured sharp clashes between presidential hopefuls, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said he isn’t worried about the party’s candidates attacking one another.

“We had differences on policy,” he told MarketWatch on Thursday. “Nobody was talking about hand size. Nobody was putting silly nicknames on people. It was all about policy issues. We agree on most everything, and those things that we have differences on, we talked about it passionately, respectfully, and then it’ll be up for the voters to decide.”

Perez’s mention of hand size and nicknames were references to comments by Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican presidential race.
