After the televised Democratic debate on October 14, The Washington Post wrote the headline “How to disappear completely, by Lincoln Chafee” and The Boston Globe wrote “Lincoln Chafee’s no good, very bad night.” On CNN, Wolf Blitzer spoke with the former Governor of Rhode Island about the reaction to his performance at the debate and asked the candidate what would make him drop out.
Chafee said with disappointment that he only got 9 minutes of a 2-hour debate. And that reaffirms what he thought when he entered the race. Chafee says it proves that “the establishment does not want to hear an anti-war voice and that motivates me even more.” Chafee went on to say “These issues are so important and I want to continue to raise them. And I will.”
