From the article:

Nelson lamented Mastrianni’s involuntary exit on Sunday, citing his healthcare expertise.

“Although everything was done by the book, it should be noted that instead of focusing energies on infighting and usurpations, we should be engaging the people and working to take back the House,” Nelson said in a statement. “Working to push progressives out of key primaries, and undermining fellow Democrats, is a detriment to our democracy, and leans heavily toward the very corrupt politicians we are fighting to unseat."

Nelson said state election law should be reformed to allow for broader participation. 

“We’re all running to be in the lawmaking process, so we shouldn't accept rules the way they are,” he said. “We should use this opportunity to consider if these are the best rules by which to run our democracy.”
