DNC Update

Office of the Secretary

Dear DNC Member,

This week was an exciting one at DNC Headquarters. On Monday, we unveiled the Democratic Victory Task Force’s Final Report and Action Plan. The Task Force, commissioned by DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz following the 2014 elections, conducted extensive research, including feedback from more than 100,000 supporters across the country. The full Democratic Victory Task Force Report and Action Plan is available here, and a Progress Update from DNC CEO Amy Dacey is available here.

This week we also heard from DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz as she responded to Donald Trump’s demonizing comments about Muslim-Americans: “Americans deserve better than a presidential nominating contest dominated by appeals to racial intolerance and calls for legalized discrimination.” Read the Chair’s full remarks here. We also have a new video on GOP efforts to incite fear. Check it out here.

Democratic National Committee Announces Six Primary Debates

Office of the Secretary

WASHINGTON – Today, Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced details for the DNC’s six presidential primary debates. This debate schedule reflects the Democratic Party’s diversity and values and will best position Democrats to win the White House next November. “We are thrilled to announce the schedule and locations for our Democratic primary debates,” said DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  “These six debates will not only give caucus goers and primary voters ample opportunity to hear from our candidates about their vision for our country’s future, they will highlight the clear contrast between the values of the Democratic Party which is focused on strengthening the middle class versus Republicans who want to pursue out of touch and out of date policies.”
