    MILWAUKEE - Democrats will “descend” on Milwaukee for the national convention in August despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said Wednesday. But Perez stopped short of predicting how many Democrats would be allowed, or willing, to attend. “We don’t know the answer today because we don’t know what the public health situation on the ground will be,” Perez said on a conference call with reporters. Perez promised to stage a “safe and effective convention where we will highlight Joe Biden and his running mate.” **SNIP** Biden and Democrats are in touch with public health experts...

    According to the Department of Labor's May report on employment, non-farm payrolls rose by 2.5 million and the unemployment rate fell to 13.3%—the biggest positive shift in more than 80 years. This confounded a Wall Street Journal prediction that these payrolls would decline by 8.3 million and unemployment would rise to 19.5%--the highest since the Great Depression. President Trump hailed the jobs numbers and said "the great enterprise of American business owners and workers is the key driving factor. As the lockdowns are being eased, the boom stimulated by the tax cuts and deregulation we implemented earlier in my term...

    Democrat presidential hopeful and billionaire Tom Steyer has requested a polling window extension in a letter to Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez ahead of the next Democrat presidential debate. When my campaign received the debate criteria for the next DNC debate in Nevada on January 31st, I was extremely disappointed to see that the Committee has narrowed the polling window significantly. The previous two polling windows have been 56-58 days and this recent period window has been cut to 35 days.

    The drumbeat for Democratic National Committee boss Tom Perez to be “held accountable” for recent party failures appears to be getting louder. The latest Democrats to criticize Perez include U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; and Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., all backers of 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. Recent party setbacks have included the vote-count fiasco at Monday’s Iowa caucuses and Tuesday night’s disclosure that two officials on the host committee of the party’s upcoming national convention in Milwaukee had been fired over non-specified allegations that they oversaw a work environment where staff members were not being...
  • MSNBC's Maddow presses DNC chair Tom Perez over low Dem turnout in Iowa: 'They didn't turn out in droves!'

    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow grilled Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez over the low turnout at Monday's Iowa caucuses, pointing out how Democrats "didn't turn out in droves" like in previous election cycles. Whiles technical errors with the voting system have plagued the Democrat Party over the past several days, some on the left are sounding the alarms after early results from the Iowa caucuses draw a parallel to the 2016 turnout, which was roughly 170,000 voters. In 2008, there were nearly 240,000 voters.

    A group of Democratic National Committee officials approved and then withheld from their own leadership a proposal to carve out a generous exit package for the party chair, Tom Perez, and two top lieutenants, leaving Democrats confounded over the weekend by the optics and timing of the decision on the eve of the presidential primary. The proposal, put forward as an official DNC resolution during a meeting of the party’s budget and finance committee last Friday, would have arranged for Perez and two of his top deputies, CEO Seema Nanda and deputy CEO Sam Cornale, to each receive a lump-sum...

    The chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) tried to change the subject when he was asked on Spanish-language TV about Latino gains in President Donald Trump’s economy. The host, Patricia Janiot, said, “Mr. Perez, President Trump has achieved something important, especially for Latinos, which is to reduce the unemployment rate to historic lows. How then can the Democrats compete with a president that has been beneficial to Latinos on economic matters?”

    Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez claimed "Trump fatigue" is one of several factors that will be in voters' minds in 2020 that will lead to a Democrat taking the White House. Perez told Martha MacCallum Monday on "The Story" that President Trump has been losing ground in key states, and pointed to an evening rally in Republican-friendly Kentucky as a key example of that. "This president is underwater in battleground states," he said, claiming Trump has left a "trail of broken promises" in his wake. "The difference between 2016 and now is, they've had three years of Donald Trump...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC,” Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez previewed the upcoming Democratic presidential debate set to air on CNN later this week. While there were divisions based on personalities, Perez said there was unity among the candidates on their approach to health care. “Will there be differences in how to approach health care?” Perez said. “Yes, there will, but what there are no differences in and what there’s unity about is the fact that every Democrat wants to get to universal health care. We have differences about how to get from where we are now, which is...

    Accuses Republicans of not having compassion Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez said on Sunday that the Democratic platform of providing health insurance to illegal immigrants is "not a handout" during an interview with Fox News's Chris Wallace. Last week's Democratic debates sparked a call among the candidates to have the government provide health care for illegal immigrants. All 10 Democratic 2020 candidates at Thursday night’s debate raised their hand when asked if their healthcare plans would provide coverage to illegal immigrants. "Every person on that stage, all ten of them said that they would provide health insurance coverage for...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez defended the proposal of health care for immigrants who entered the United States illegally. Thursday at the Democratic debate all ten candidates raised their hands when asked if they support health care for undocumented immigrants. Perez said, “It’s an insurance program, so you got to pay into it. Immigrants, including undocumented immigrants, pay billions of dollars in taxes. That is the reality.” He continued, “Democrats believe that you should be able to buy into a health insurance system. It is not a handout.” He added, “I...

    Democrats will hold at least a dozen presidential primary debates starting in June 2019 and running through April 2020, with party Chairman Tom Perez promising rules that will give everyone in a potentially large field a fair shot at voters’ attention. Making public his first in a series of decisions over the 2020 debate calendar, Perez said Thursday that the national party will sponsor six debates in 2019 and six more in 2020. That could be extended if the nomination process drags deep into the spring. Exact dates, locations, media partners and qualifying thresholds will be announced in early 2019....

    A Mexican national charged with killing three people in Missouri in early November was released from a New Jersey county jail in 2017, despite being the subject an active immigration detention request, federal authorities said Friday.

    Talk about a Freudian slip, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, with a slip of the tongue, voiced what anyone paying attention already knows, that being that there are no moderate Democrats left. Doing what Democrats do best, projecting and flipping the narrative, the head of the party who called un accomplished democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez its “future,” appeared on MSNBC to suggest the GOP is the party of extremists — except his tongue couldn’t keep up with his deceptive mind. “When you see the mistreatment of Dr. Ford, that’s a mistreatment of every woman across America,” Perez declared. “When...

    The narrow confirmation of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend marked a major political victory for President Trump – and the beginning of a new battle for Democrats, who are now shifting their message to threaten possible impeachment against the newest high court justice and question the legitimacy of the Supreme Court itself. After a grueling confirmation fight that included graphic sexual misconduct allegations which the nominee denied, Kavanaugh was confirmed Saturday on 50-48 vote. His ceremonial swearing-in will be held Monday evening. But as he joins the court, replacing retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, prominent Democrats signal the fight over...
