I need to know
Add your name: say you'll fight to elect Democrats who will resist Donald Trump, his administration, and the harmful GOP agenda.
When Tom Perez asked me to join this team as CEO of the Democratic Party, I thought about it long and hard -- and decided it was impossible to say no.
Tom and I share a commitment to rebuilding the Democratic Party from the ground up, to make our party the most effective force to fight at the national, state, and local level for an America where every person has a chance to get ahead.
To do that, it's going to take a truly grassroots movement -- it's going to take you.
So I need to know that you're with us. Right now, say you're in to elect Democrats this year, in 2018, and beyond.
In my first week on the job, I've jumped right into the deep end -- focusing on the specific things we can do right now to win special elections this month and gubernatorial and legislative elections in the fall, and how we'll do the tough work of building our party back up for the long haul.
This is my dream job. I get to keep doing what I've always loved doing: electing Democrats. And I get to do it with supporters like you, who are so passionate about what Democrats are fighting for and invested in our success.
I believe in our party, and I believe in what we can make of it together. So let's get in the trenches together and do whatever it takes to win:
Thanks so much for the warm welcome and for everything you do for our party. Now let's get to work.
