At New Jersey ‘Unity Tour’ Rally, Ellison & Perez Call For Resistance

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — National Democratic Party leaders urge New Jerseyans to resist Republican policies in races up and down the ballot.

They rallied at a hotel ballroom in Newark on Friday.

Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison told supporters the mission was to re-energize the party’s base and win back support after November’s defeat.

The Congressman from Minnesota called it a “unity tour” and a “turnaround tour.”

National committee chairman Tom Perez said the goal is to elect Democratic candidates up and down the ballot.

One of those races is in New Jersey, where a slate of candidates is seeking to succeed Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who is term-limited, this November.

Perez singled out the often-pugnacious Christie for criticism.

“We have a bully in Washington in the White House,” Perez said. “We asked where in the country can we travel to learn about bullies? And we had an idea and our idea was let’s come to New Jersey.”

  1. The only bullies and cry babies are all, you leftist idiots. You lost and will continue to lose because your out of touch with reality. Go home maybe mommy will make you some cookies to have with your milk

  2. All I see are Democrats attacking Trump. I don’t see Democrats offering any better plans for this country. If these types of attacks took place after Obama was elected. The screams of racism would be heard around the world. Nothing but hypocrites.
