Keith Ellison makes a quiet trip to Georgia for DNC bid

img_5360

You know that state Sen. Vincent Fort remains a stalwart Bernie Sanders supporter. The Atlanta Democrat and mayoral candidate is also embracing another progressive for higher office.

He was among a handful of Georgia Democrats to meet with Minnesota U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison during a quiet trip to Atlanta on Friday to build support for his bid for Democratic National Committee chair.

Ellison also journeyed to Dublin to meet with Democratic Party of Georgia chair DuBose Porter, where they had a lengthy discussion on the race for DNC leader and the party’s overall health.

He faces a tough fight. U.S. Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who is in the race, has earned the tacit support of President Barack Obama and other party leaders. Other contenders include South Carolina Democratic Party chair, Idaho Democratic Party Executive Director Sally Boynton Brown and New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley.

DNC has to broaden their appeal again.. The far left agenda was rejected.

Yes, good choice Democrats... You have lost 1000+ seats around the country for the last 10 years because of Progressives... So yes, the correct path is to double-down and go farther left...

As a "practicing" muslim, how can this congressman actually defend the oath of office when it is incompatible with sharia dogma. He is a practicing sexual intellect.

Hopefully the democrats choose Ellison, then the democrats will never win another election again. The democrats have learned nothing about what the American people are looking for, the are more moderate of they wouldn't have voted for Trump. Please choose Ellison, please, so republicans will win in two years. Don't learn any lessons.

Muslims had their time with Barack Hussein Obama, one of their own. I believe any other statement regarding his belief is false. However, go ahead and keep showing the true face of the Democrats party, socialist, Muslims, terrorist, illegals.

What Matthew said, AND the Obamas are Christian, regardless of your adamant adherence to your misinformed opinion. Great job stereotyping off of a cultural name, though. The US has over 200 years of Christian, White men in the highest offices (as you put it "one of their own")...so going off of your logic, "they had their time"... but "go ahead and keep showing the true face". Generalizations are ignorant because it takes swaths of people and neglects what they have contributed, who they are, and the context of the environment around them. Take care and if observing, enjoy the holiday season.

You both are talking about yourselves as ignorant dirtbags. Get some knowledge then you can try to speak otherwise STFU. This man is member of CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood which Egypt declared a theorist group. Obama declared he is a Christian only for political reasons. The man he said is his pastor he wasn't even familiar with his sermons. He bowed to Muslim leaders, he built mosques around the world and filled the White House with Muslim Brotherhood members. He refused to called out the terrorists and as late favored them over Israel. What Christian is named Hussein? Only Muslim. Idiots, go ahead let Muslims be in government so they can find ways to introduce Sharia Law.

He is perfect to lead the Democrats, anti-semetic, anti-Christain, anti-capitalism, anti-white people and anti-American.

Democrats are seriously trying their best to become the party of obscurity. How would this radical appeal to any sane person? Especially a Christian. Of course the media won't expose how radical he is but thank goodness there will be numerous places where factual information can be found from credible sources. I'm all for him! Please democrats prop him up. That'll insure at least 10 Senate pickups in 2018.

Ellison is a good and capable man but the job really needs a full timer and not a Congressman that cannot give 100 percent to it. In my view.

Why would anyone want a Marxist divider in a leadership position. Keith Ellison has only proved through time that he has an evil heart. What an awful man.
