New DNC Chair Tom Perez Booed At DNC Reboot Tour
New Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez received a rude welcome at the DNC’s “Come Together Fight Back” tour stop in Portland, Maine.
“Regardless of why you showed up today, you showed up for a reason. Something compelled you to find the space and time to be here, and I want you to ask yourself what that reason is,” Claire
Cummings, a leader of the Maine Young Democrats, told the crowd.
“Maybe it’s because you love a certain senator from Vermont,” Cummings said, referring to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. The crowd roared with approval at the mention of Sanders’ name and started chanting his name.
