There is no doubt that the Democrats have a lot of work to do if they want to have a shot at taking back the White House in 2020.
Today, the new DNC Chair made a big move with that goal in mind.
He cleaned house.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major reorganization of the party’s organization that has been stung by recent crisis — and the DNC has requested the resignation letters of all current staffers be submitted by next month.
Party staffs typically sees major turnover with a new boss, but the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch after staffing had already reached unusual low following a round of layoffs in December.
Immediately after Perez’ election in late February, a to adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal working.
That’s definitely a step in the right direction for Democrats.
However, they will have to make some serious policy changes as well.
