Bernie Sanders on DNC loss: 'Democratic Party has been embarrassingly bad'

  • 7 years ago
Sen. Bernie Sanders and his supporters went hard after anyone who wouldn't back Keith Ellison in the run-up to the Democratic National Committee chair election.
Sanders backed Keith Ellison during the DNC’s vote for a new chairman, though Perez defeated the Minnesota Congressman 235 votes to 200.
“One of my goals as outreach chair of the Senate Democrats is to do everything I can to make the Democratic Party competitive in red states,” Sanders said in an interview this weekend.
“I think the Democratic Party has been embarrassingly bad at that recently, and we need to expand our reach.”
