Democrat party will choose its new chairperson soon. 447 members of the party will gather in Atlantic for choosing their new president of the party.
New chairperson will lead the Democrat party in opposition of President Donald Trump. After the brutal loss in President election on 8 November, 2016, democrat party seems in need of a new head to lead it in better and strong leadership.
Seven eligible names are coming in media for next chairperson of the party, including former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, a favorite of former Obama administration officials, and U.S. Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota, backed by liberal leaders such as U.S. Senators Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Perez is the son of Dominican immigrants, while Ellison was the first Muslim elected to the U.S. Congress. All of the candidates have pledged to focus on a bottom-up reconstruction of the party, which has lost hundreds of statehouse seats under Obama and faces an uphill task in trying to reclaim majorities in Congress in next year’s midterm elections. Ellison has pledged to start building Democratic organizations in each U.S. county.
