U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips, a Democratic presidential primary challenger, criticized his party for canceling primary races in multiple states, likening the actions to Iran’s election tactics.

Phillips, who has gained support in New Hampshire, has expressed the need for a competitive primary against President Biden.

He has accused his party of preventing competition and debate, highlighting concerns about the primary process. (Trending: U.S. State Passes Personal Pronoun Ban)

“Still waiting for someone to explain how this is different than Iran’s tactics to guarantee the outcome of elections,” Phillips wrote. “Not a single state GOP party has moved to make Trump the only candidate on the ballot. Utter hypocrisy,” he added.

“Dean Phillips went from 0 to 21% in NH in two months. It’s almost like people want a competitive primary against Biden – and realize that we need a stronger candidate against Trump,” Andrew Yang said.

“Imagine Trump against a fresh new 54 year old.”

Phillips will be leaving Congress at the end of his term and has been vocal about the need for a fair and open primary.

“A hundred and some people on their executive committee said, we don’t need a primary, Joe Biden will be the nominee and therefore we will hand 250 delegates to Joe Biden,” Phillips said.

“North Carolina the next week said, you know what, despite the fact that I qualified by simply being a presidential candidate who is in the national news, that’s their only predicate. They decided they don’t need a primary either, that Joe Biden has won, and they will hand their delegates to him,” he added.

“And these are, this is happening right in front of our faces. And the president has not said a word about it. So I’m concerned that part of what you’re seeing right now is this duopoly working to actually prevent competition, prevent debate, and prevent voters from even opining.”
