SIGN-ON: Join Keith Ellison's campaign for DNC Chair
This election cycle, we did not motivate enough people to the ballot box.
We must champion the challenges of working families and give voters a reason to show up at the polls in 2018 and beyond.
We must build a bench not just for federal candidates, but for state and local candidates across the nation.
We also need a robust party organization in every state that prioritizes voter relationships over everything else.
We must invest in and empower our state and local parties by creating effective field operations, an enhanced and advanced voter file, and a culture of collaboration between candidates at every level. Let's put the voters first.

"My friend Keith Ellison is a terrific leader and a strong progressive who knows how to get things done. Now is the time for new thinking and a fresh start at the DNC. Now is the time for Keith."
– Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (NV)
“At a time when Republicans will control the White House, the U. S. House, the U.S. Senate and two-thirds of all statehouses, it is time for a fundamental rethinking about what the Democratic Party stands for and how it functions. It is time for the Democratic Party to make it clear that we will become a grassroots party which stands with the working families of this country and will fight for a government that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent. That's the kind of change Keith Ellison represents and why he must become the next chair of the Democratic Party.”
– Senator Bernie Sanders (VT)
"Congressman Keith Ellison is the progressive leader we need to run the Democratic National Committee. Throughout his career, Congressman Ellison has been dedicated to building the Democratic bench by encouraging and supporting candidates at all levels of government and I know as DNC Chair he will bring the same dedication and passion. Congressman Ellison understands we need to build an inclusive party where everyone feels listened to and all are welcome and he is the right person to fulfill that vision."
– New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito
"I am proud to endorse Congressman Keith Ellison to be the next Chair of the Democratic National Committee. After the DNC put forward the most progressive platform in our party's history, it is essential we have a leader like Rep. Ellison who has championed and fought for these values and policies. I am confident Rep. Ellison will continue to move our party forward and he will fight for the progressive values we share as Democrats.”
– Martha Laning (Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin)
“The Democratic Party needs some shaking up. It needs something new. It needs a DNC Chair that represents a younger, more strategic, more progressive, more diverse Democratic Party. I support Rep. Keith Ellison for Democratic National Committee chair. Will you join me? The entire Democratic Party will be proud with Keith as DNC Chair because he will lead with backbone and help us win again.”
– Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12)
