DNC leadership debate: candidates tout credentials as progressive Democrats | US news | The Guardian





“Donald Trump is our president in 48 hours or less,” the labor secretary, Tom Perez, one of the leading candidates for the job, said during a debate at George Washington University hosted by the Huffington Post. “We need a leader in the party who’s a fighter, who’s a proven progressive, who can be a communicator and who can be a turnaround specialist.”



Representative Keith Ellison, a grassroots organizer from Minnesota who endorsed Bernie Sanders during the primary, is considered one of the frontrunners in the race. Perez, who was a surrogate for Clinton and an ally of labor, is viewed as his chief rival for the job."
