College Democrats at Oregon State University’s Statement Regarding the Ongoing Race For DNC Chair

February 20, 2017

After reading extensively about the candidates’ credentials, and being privileged enough to have met a DNC member who has spoken with nearly all candidates for DNC chair, the College Democrats at Oregon State University executive board was unable to come to consensus or even majority agreement regarding which candidate for DNC chair to endorse. Members of our club supported Tom Perez, Pete Buttigeg, Keith Ellison, or remained undecided. 
All the candidates in the race currently are outstanding individuals who are capable of rebuilding the party at the local, state, and national levels, and effectively communicating the party’s resistance to Trump’s agenda. We wish whoever is elected the best of luck.
