Virgil, this is a “where were ya?” moment. Years from now, our children and grandchildren will ask us where we were when Trump and the GOP attacked the core values of our country and our party.
I vowed after November 8th, 2016 that I would do whatever I could to move our party forward, and I’m honored to step into this new role as Chair of the DNC today.
If we’re going to organize and fight and win, it’s going to take folks like you at every level. We need to strengthen our team from the grassroots up to build the party that empowers every single Democrat to fight for our progressive values and vision of opportunity and optimism.
Our only chance at winning in 2017, 2018, and beyond — not only at the national level, but at every level — is to be united in a common purpose. And that has to start now.
Thanks — I look forward to working with you!
Democratic National Committee
