DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich said Saturday he has "concerns" over how the Iowa Democratic Party handles their first-in-the-nation caucus, adding that those involved in the process play "inside baseball."
"[The party] has done the people of Iowa a disservice by trying to rig the debate," Kucinich said. "I have some concerns about the process here. It's more insular than many other states."
Kucinich, attending the Heartland Community Values Forum in Des Moines, was asked by reporters whether or not he will be campaigning any more in Iowa leading up to the caucus on January 3.
"I'm here [now]," he told CNN. "I mean let's talk about some things that are apparent. I'm here. "
Kucinich added that there are other states he has to "give some love to, as well."
Asked what he meant by his claim that the state's Democratic party has "rigged the debate," Kucinich responded, "I'm not going to say anything else about it.
An Iowa Democratic Party spokeswoman declined to comment.
