Tom Perez Tag

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.

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.

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."
