Lis Smith warned that Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez will “purify [Democrats] into irrelevance” with his stance on pro-life Democrats.
Lis Smith, a Democratic strategist, warned on MSNBC on Monday that Democratic National Committee Chair (DNC) Tom Perez will “purify [Democrats] into irrelevance” with his stance on pro-life Democrats.
“One thing that was troubling to me was that on Friday, we saw Tom Perez come out and say, we will only support candidates who are pro-choice,” Smith said.
“The crux of a 50-state strategy is trusting the grassroots of the party and local leadership in these parties to pick the best leaders for their areas.”
“If we impose these purity tests, that we will purify ourselves into irrelevance,” the Democratic strategist said. “And we will purify our party to the point where we can only win elections in states that touch saltwater.”
Perez, in addition to Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), have said that only candidates supporting the party line on Roe vs. Wade are welcome to run as Democrats.
