The race for chair of the Democratic National Committee came to an end (yesterday) in Atlanta when former Labor Secretary Tom Perez was elected to the position, beating out Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison in a race that had come to be framed as a battle between the party’s Obama-era establishment and the burgeoning progressive wing of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Conceding the race, Ellison, who was backed by Sanders, pleaded with his supporters to “give everything you’ve got to support Chairman Perez.”
WE HOPE YOU WILL DO THE SAME by supporting this new leadership duo. Please read the rest of this 538 article on why this is a pretty progressive pair to move us forward into 2018 and 2020.
THEN, purchase your tickets to hear Deputy Chair Ellison speak at our April 23rd Gala.
It’s time for us all to join together and create a consolidated opposition to the trumpery ahead.
