Keith Ellison for DNC Chair

Democratic National Committee

O-keith-ellison-facebook

Bernie Sanders has endorsed Minnesota progressive Rep. Keith Ellison for chairman of the Democratic National Committee, saying, "We need a Democratic National Committee led by a progressive who understands the dire need to listen to working families, not the political establishment or the billionaire class."

Bernie is right--but it's going to take a huge grassroots upswell to make the establishment listen.

Keith has long fought for the kind of progressive, populist economic agenda necessary to bring working class Trump voters back to the Democratic Party.

Keith has worked with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders to hold Wall Street CEOs accountable, oppose trade deals like the TPP, and stop cuts to Medicare and Social Security.

And Keith is one of the few Democrats who saw the threat posed by Donald Trump clearly, predicting as early as last July that Trump could be president.

If you sign this petition, Maine State Rep. Diane Russell will personally deliver your name to the Democratic National Committee.

Diane led the successful effort to reduce the role of super delegates in the presidential nominating fight and was one of the first elected officials in the country to endorse Bernie for President. Now she's working to rebuild the party from the ground up by running for state party chair in Maine--while getting behind Keith Ellison for DNC Chair at the national level. Will you stand with her by signing the petition?
