Former DNC Chair Blasts 2020 Dems For Claiming There’s a Lack of Minority Staffers in the Party

Donna Brazile, former chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), blasted Democrats who are considering running for president on Tuesday, for suggesting there is a lack of qualified minority staffers in the party.

Brazile’s comments were in response to a story published by Politico, which claimed that Democratic candidates who are considering running in 2020 are having a difficult time finding minority staffers for their campaigns because there is a small “pool of nonwhite campaign managers and senior advisers.”

Politico also reported that some of these 2020 hopefuls are “compiling spreadsheets of potential minority staffers.”

“There’s plenty of talented people inside and outside of Washington, DC and vendors. Just reach out,” Brazile tweeted, linking to the Politico article.

According to Politico, the lack of qualified minority staffers “stems from the failure of Democratic lawmakers and office seekers to diversify their staffs at the senior level.”
