MDP Chair Dillon Endorses Keith Ellison for DNC Chair

LANSING — The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement today, on behalf of Party Chair Brandon Dillon, declaring Dillon’s support of Keith Ellison for Chair of the Democratic National Committee:

“Our next DNC Chair must unify the party, commit to investing in our state parties, and have a message that puts working Americans first. I’ve had numerous conversations with Keith about the importance of organizing on the ground in 2017, rebuilding our party from the ground up, and harnessing the energy of grassroots Democrats. Keith’s desire to refocus the DNC on our local communities and local party organizations is exactly in line with what we plan to do in Michigan. That is why I am honored to support Keith Ellison. Not only is Keith a Detroit native that understands Michigan, he is an organizer that can unify our party and raise the resources to win in 2018 and beyond.”
