Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez and deputy chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) are now calling for a change to their party’s superdelegate system.
The Democratic National Committee’s deputy chair is confident that Democrats will take back the House and the Senate during the 2018 midterm elections.
The progressive wing of the Democratic coalition won a small victory on Friday when the Democratic National Committee voted down a resolution demanding Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) join the party.
Tensions between the Democratic Party’s establishment and its left-wing base continue to emerge, and some members worry about a purge of supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.).
Several longtime officials at the Democratic National Committee have lost their positions ahead of their first meeting since Tom Perez took over as chairman.
