    Rep. Keith Ellison to announce possible run for DNC chair

    Rep. Keith Ellison says he will make an announcement on Monday amid talks that he will be running for chair of the Democratic National Committee.

    “Let me just say this: the key has got to be a turnout-based, grassroots-based Democratic Party that uses relationship-building, one to one,” Ellison said, citing “relationship building at the grassroots level” as the key to rebuilding the DNC.

    African-American Muslim Aims to Lead Democratic Party

    upload_2016-11-15_8-17-18.png


    President-elect Donald Trump's victory last week all but fractured the Democratic Party, leaving it in chaos as it prepares to select a new national party chair.


    As of Monday afternoon, more than one man wants the job.

    U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) announced Monday afternoon he was officially running for party chairman. He now joins former DNC chair Howard Dean, who announced his intention to run last week.

    Ellison would be the convergence of many firsts for the party. For starters, while he is deeply tied to the far-left wing of the party, he is also an African-American Muslim. And, he also has very deep ties to the Nation of Islam, the militant Islamic group led by Louis Farrakhan.

    African-American Muslim Aims to Lead Democratic Party

    The list of Democrats who are backing him is terrifying. Meanwhile, a former chair says leading the party is a full-time job.

    Ellison would also be an albatross around the neck of the Democratic Party, as their opponents attack his connections. Instead of focusing on firsts, they need to focus on how they will shore up their support in areas that they were lagging in this past election.

    Exactly. But, they probably won't figure that out, huh?

    You worry too much about the party you are not voting for. What you should be doing is worrying about the decisions made by the party you do vote for that may hinder your party from winning the mid-term elections.
