The Democratic field for the 2020 presidential election has 24 candidates. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) knows this is too many people, so officials have taken steps to make it harder for the candidates to reach the third and fourth primary debates.

A major fight is unfolding in the Democratic party over voter data. Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez wants to centralize the information in a large central database. But many state-level Democrats see this as a power grab and want to maintain their own data.

DNC Chair Tom Perez was asked a direct question on Tuesday about how much the DNC paid to the law firm that paid Fusion GPS and who authorized the payment. Perez responded with a long rambling answer about how awful Trump is.

The left has had a love-hate relationship with the Electoral College for decades.  When it looks like the Electoral College will help or has helped them, they champion it, and when it looks like it has "stolen" an election from their popular-vote winning candidate, they want it dismantled. In the wake of the resounding 2016 Electoral College win for President Trump (304-227), current DNC chair Tom Perez is taking the Democratic Party into uncharted territory with his declaration that the Electoral College "is not a creation of the Constitution."  He made this bizarre pronouncement before a group of law students at Indiana University Law School.

The Democrat National Committee (DNC) continues on its downward spiral as many longtime officials have lost their jobs on top committees. However, it doesn't appear it will help things since reports suggest that the progressives within the party view it as "retaliation" since they opposed DNC Chairman Tom Perez.

While the liberal media fantasizes about a Democratic Party wave in 2018, the reality is that the party is still struggling to find a message. Anti-Trump rage is not a platform and it's not translating into dollars. Anna Giaritelli reports at the Washington Examiner:
DNC reports worst April of fundraising since 2009 The Democratic National Committee reported its worst April of fundraising since 2009, according to Federal Election Commission records released Monday.

Is Joy Reid going to rap DNC Chairman Tom Perez on the knuckles for failure to abide by her anointed nomenclature? As we noted this past weekend, MSNBC host Reid reprimanded Republican Katon Dawson for speaking of the "Democrat" party. She warned Dawson that "we're going to have a talking-to," she instructed him, "we say 'Democratic' on this show." Perez appeared on Morning Joe and CNN this morning to discuss yesterday's congressional primary in Georgia. And—ruh-roh—Perez twice spoke of the "Democrat" party! On Morning Joe, he said, "we're building a Democrat National Committee whose mission is not simply to elect the President of the United States." And later, on CNN, Perez said, "the Democrat party, we have to walk and chew gum."
