WASHINGTON DC -- Over the weekend, California Democratic Party Vice Chair and Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Eric Bauman endorsed Keith Ellison for DNC Chair.
In an email to supporters, Bauman states, “We have an impressive array of candidates, each of whom bring needed strengths and perspectives as we rebuild the Democratic Party. I considered each candidate carefully, and have come to the conclusion that Congressman Keith Ellison is the right choice to lead us forward.”
Bauman adds, “Representative Ellison shares my belief that the power and the passion of our Party lies in the hands of our activists and volunteers. Only the most successful DNC Chairs we have seen understand why we dedicate our lives to the fight and keep in mind who we're fighting for.”
Bauman also writes, “Congressman Ellison is committed to making sure all of us have a place in the Democratic Party. He will be a Chair for all of us--from veteran delegates first inspired by the presidential campaigns of John and Robert Kennedy to the energetic and enthusiastic new activists mobilized by the recent campaign of Bernie Sanders.”
