As a sort of last-ditch effort to save the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez vowed to try and fix his broken party before it was too late.
As conservatives, I know we see these issues within the DNC as a win and they are… but with the shadiness of the DNC, seemingly on the whole, it might be a refreshing change to some.
The real answer is to dump the entire lineup and start fresh but what would I know? I’m just a CIS SCUM WHITE MALE lol.
The plans have all but stalled as there’s still a very odd internal struggle happening within their party. Perez, ultimately, is having trouble bringing the “factions” together.
“I knew it was a turnaround job when I ran, but I undeniably underestimated the depth of the turnaround job. We had to rebuild almost every facet of the organization, and equally importantly, we had to rebuild trust,” Perez said in a recent interview at party headquarters. “Not just people who had invested in the DNC, but others — they just felt the party had let them down.”
It makes sense, right? They’ve been ROCKED by scandals. Alleged Russian hacking (yes within the DNC), to Debbie Wasserman Schultz mishaps, and among other things the Clinton / Sanders rivalry that apparently still exists.
As reported by Politico:
Most of the DNC’s officers and members have coalesced behind Perez. Fundraising, while still trailing far behind the Republican National Committee, is on the uptick, boosted by a major donor program Perez has nurtured and checks that picked up after Democrats won high-profile races last fall in Virginia and Alabama. State party chairs say they’re being listened to again. And a tech operation that had atrophied to the point of near collapse under the previous leadership is being rebuilt.
“People understandably, because of [President Donald] Trump and what’s going on, want things to be moving quickly,” said Michael Blake, a DNC vice chair. “But because it’s not moving fast, that does not mean it’s not moving well.”
The committee is trying to forge ahead even as it remains saddled by factionalism. The war between Sanders and Clinton has morphed into a battle between people who believe the Vermont senator needs to actively participate in an institution that’s changing to accommodate his demands — and those who believe the DNC should just be grateful Sanders and his allies are helping it change.
“If you want to write a story that says RNC outraises DNC, that is the quintessential dog bites man story, and has been for some time. They’ve got a lot more wealthy people,” Perez said. “Am I content with that? Absolutely not. We have a size 12 vision that can enable us to win everywhere, and we currently have a size 9 budget.”
