-- Rep. Keith Ellison has officially jumped into the race to lead the Democratic Party.
The Minnesota Democrat is already working to establish himself as the progressive choice for the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) reckoning after Hillary Clinton's shocking loss to Republican nominee Donald Trump last week in the presidential election.
"Democrats win when we harness the power of everyday people and fight for the issues they care about. It is not enough for Democrats to ask for voters' support every two years. We must be with them through every lost paycheck, every tuition hike, and every time they are the victim of a hate crime. ... We must begin the rebuilding process now," he said in a statement.
"If given the opportunity to serve, I will work tirelessly to make the Democratic Party an organization that brings us together and advances an agenda that improves people’s lives.”
SHAW-- It seems the Democrats have not learned a thing from their crushing defeat by We the People in the 2016 election. The Dems haven't paid any attention to the problems of the average American since the the early 60s. Even the majority of the Unions have abandoned the Democrats as they see their jobs going to immigrants. So the Progressives answer is stay with those who have lost the voters Pelosi, Schumer and bring in as head of the party a Muslim.
