This past week has been not too kind for us Democrats, although I would like to congratulate Mr. O'Rourke of Missouri and Mr. Solin of Ohio on their Senate wins.
We must move forward towards the legislative session, with lots of issues coming our way including gun rights, education reform, immigration, and health care.
And looking forward to 2020, we have 3 candidates so far lined up to run. As DNC Chair, I will refrain from endorsing a candidate in the primary, and will ensure we have a fair, transparent primary where everyone gets an equal chance.
And as we move forward, I must impress upon the idea of party unity. It is a must. And as we move towards 2020, we will develop a platform that all Democrats, progressive, moderate, and conservative, can get behind. One of good, honest government, one of ending corporate influence in government, one of raising wages, restoring voting rights, and criminal justice reform.
Don't let recent events keep you down. We still have a lot of work to do, and it starts with electing a Minority Whip. Elections are underway, and we will pick the best person for the job. Simple as that.
