WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on Democrats electing Tom Perez as the new DNC Chair:
"The Democrat Party has lost touch with the American people. Voters spoke loud and clear last November that they wanted a change in Washington and to reverse the failed policies of the last eight years. Families across the country are tired of skyrocketing premiums when they were promised affordable health care. They're tired of the Obama Economy that's left too many behind. President Trump and Republican representatives heard the voters' message loud and clear, and now hold a near historic number of offices across the country. By selecting a D.C. insider, Democrats only create deeper divisions within their own party by pushing a far left agenda that rejects a majority of their base outside Washington. The DNC would be well-served to learn from two straight election cycle losses, encourage the leaders in their party to listen to what the voters want, and get to work with Republicans to fix the mess they created."
