Garrison on MSNBC, says Democratic Presidential Primary is “Healthy for Democracy”

By Jacqueline Isaacs

Bishop Garrison, Rainey Center president and co-founder, was on MSNBC over the weekend to discuss the Democratic candidates currently investing time in Iowa in preparation for the presidential primary.

The conversation also covered some recent gaffes of former Vice President Joe Biden and what impact they will have on his poll numbers.

Garrison argued that these gaffes will not be detrimental to Biden’s chances at getting the Democratic nomination. He said, “Joe Biden has shown us time and time again the type of heart he has, the type of man he is, the type of leader he has been and can ultimately be.” Garrison went on to call these recent gaffes as “little blips” that many are blowing out of proportion.

Garrison went on to say that the primary process with the “incredible group of candidates” for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination is “quite healthy for democracy” and that “any one of them can a tremendous leader.”
