Ton Perez, the new Demon-cratic National Committee chair was actually booed at the DNC’s “come together fight back” tour at a stop in Portland, Maine.
“Regardless of why you showed up today, you showed up for a reason. Something compelled you to find the space and time to be here, and I want you to ask yourself what that reason is,” Claire Cummings, a leader of the Maine Young Democrats, told the crowd.
“Maybe you came though because you’re curious about the new DNC chairman and the future of the Democratic party,” Cummings said, referring to Perez.
The DNC chair race is largely attributed to the divide in the party itself, specifically between Clinton and Sanders supporters.
