Clinton, Sanders, O’Malley blast Republicans at major NHDP fundraiser.

'Sanders and O’Malley worked to distinguished themselves from Clinton while the former secretary of state focused squarely on the GOP.

All three candidates received raucous ovations from their supporters in the crowd. . .

O’Malley took not-so-veiled shots at his primary opponents.

He said that he is “not a former socialist,” in a dig at Sanders. He made an unnamed reference to Clinton when he said, “We must stop giving a free pass to the bullies of Wall Street.

“I have never represented Wall Street and, I sure as hell won't be taking economic orders from the big banks of Wall Street when I’m in your White House,” he said.

“As Democrats, we must cast aside the worn out politics of the past."

O’Malley also promised to protect the nation from the threat of terrorism, but said, “Ultimately, our success in confronting this threat -- our long-term success in defeating this evil -- depends upon the power of our values.

“Democracies are very vulnerable to turning upon themselves in the aftermath of a terror attack. Denying this victory to terror depends upon the courage and resolve of the American people,” he said.

“Individual citizens across this great land must resist the fear-based appeals of their own politicians. Because panic and political opportunism are a toxic mix -- that can precede fascism or the plunging of our republic into a security state.

“Just as Joe McCarthy could look at any problem and spot an invisible communist lurking behind it, Donald Trump blames everything on new American immigrants and Muslim Americans,” O’Malley said.

“Trump says we should be monitoring everyone of the Muslim faith, keeping some kind of registry, maybe even issuing special ID cards. Who is next? Catholics? Trade unionists?

“We've seen this road before, and it does not end well,” O'Malley said.' >>>
