DemDaily: DNC On the Road Again

January 12, 2018

Since taking the helm last February, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez and Deputy Chair Keith Ellison have clocked thousands of miles through dozens of states.

Perez, the former Secretary of Labor under President Obama and the first elected Latino Chair of the DNC, and Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to Congress (Minnesota's 5th CD), vowed to "educate, organize, and mobilize grassroots energy from Democrats in all 57 states, territories, and Democrats Abroad." -- and by most accounts have delivered.

Starting with "The Fight Back Tour", then "Resistance Summer", and now the "Winning With Partners" tour, the two have crisscrossed the country to unite Dems and allies, and build what is now a coalition of over 200 national and state organizations.

The Winning With Partners in 2018 Tour is a joint initiative of the DNC and the Association of State Democratic Chairs (ASDC). The goal is to strengthen progressive infrastructure in key states to both champion democratic issues and values and build towards Democratic electoral victories in 2018.

The program, spearheaded by Ellison, began in October, and has taken him to NevadaVirginiaTexasMichiganNorth CarolinaMinnesota and, this week, for a Rally and TownHall in Pennsylvania - focused on the fight against the GOP Tax Plan and the fight for the DACA "Dreamers" and fair immigration reform.

Ellison will hold a TownHall this weekend in Connecticutand will travel to WisconsinWashingtonIndianaCaliforniaFlorida and others in February and March.

New Haven, Connecticut 06511
