Rendell Endorses Pete Buttigieg for DNC Chair

EdRendell1Former Pennsylvania Governor and Democratic National Committee Chairman Ed Rendell endorsed Mayor Pete Buttigieg for DNC Chair.  The new Chair will be elected by DNC members on February 23rd.  

“What impressed me most about Pete is when I read that he said that sitting back and waiting for the map and demographics to save us is not going to be enough and that we have to aggressively compete for working class voters. He is 100 percent correct, and I believe he can bring a message that will resonate in all parts of Pennsylvania and our country, in our big cities, in our small counties, in red areas and blue areas, alike,” Rendell said.  

Buttigieg is the Mayor of South Bend Indiana.  He is a graduate of Harvard University and Rhodes Scholar.  He also serves in the U.S. Naval Reserve.  

Rendell’s endorsement breaks from Governor Tom Wolf and Pa. Democratic Party Chair Marcel Groen’s endorsement of former Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

    Ed Rendell, proving that winning elections doesn’t mean you can pick other people to win.

  3. Paul Roden says:

    Even though I don’t like Rendell, I think Pete Buttegieg would be a good compromise choice for Chair of the DNC. I saw him on MSNBC last week and I liked what he said. We need a new message and a new strategy from the bottom up, not from the top down. Let the rank and file Democrats decide who their leaders are, what the message and platform should be and not some rich, white, heterosexual men in a “smoke filled back room,” decide what is best for us and the country. Perez would just continue more of the failed strategy, tactics and corporate Democrats like Hillary under Debbie Wasserman Schultz. NO MORE DINO’s!

    @ StevenTodd:

    Democrats will either ANTAGONIZE MOST AMERICANS, or will HAVE A CHANCE TO gain back their support.

    Keith Ellison for DNC Chair…NOT!

    [for your own good]

  5. StevenTodd says:

    Democrats will either excite our liberal working class base, or we will not gain back their support.

    Keith Ellison for DNC Chair.
