Perez is claiming the DNC invested in the Kansas special election. Sanders disagrees.
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) don’t appear to be on the same page ahead of their multi-state ‘Unity Tour’ that begins on Monday.
Over the weekend, Sanders said that the Democratic Party should have invested more resources into that Kansas special election during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
However, DNC Chair Perez seems to think that the party did invest enough in the special election, telling NPR as much during an interview on Monday.
“We invested in the following ways. When people were out there knocking on doors, they were using the DNC’s voter file,” Perez told NPR in an interview on Monday.
Perez goes on to cite robocalls that the DNC paid for as another example of the party investing in the special election.
As for the Georgia special election, Perez wouldn’t predict a win for Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, seeming to rein in party expectations for the district.
It would appear that Perez and Sanders are hardly united in their opinion of what it means for the Democratic Party to be involved in an election, and should make their upcoming ‘Unity Tour’ an interesting one to watch.
