Tom Perez Won’t Say Whether Hillary Clinton Should Be Leading Dems

“We have a lot of leaders,” the DNC Chair said.

Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez wouldn’t say whether Hillary Clinton should be putting herself forward as the leader of the Democratic Party on CNN’s New Day on Thursday.

“Do you think, for the future of your party, you need to make a decision about whether or not Hillary Clinton is allowed to be out there as the putative head of your party?” Chris Cuomo asked Perez.

“We have a lot of leaders who are out there today,” Perez tepidly answered.

That list includes “Secretary Clinton, including so many other folks,” he added.
