Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez spoke about the fading blue wave as the upcoming midterm approaches. He also said that the GOP excitement was beginning to pick up steam.
Perez claims to have a lot of “confidence” and the Dems have “great candidates” running.
“[L]isten, we always knew that this election was going to be close,” Perez said. “I don’t use the term ‘blue wave.’ I always talk about the need for the blocking and tackling. I always talk about the need for organizing, to make sure you are leading with your values, and that’s how we have been winning throughout this year and throughout 2017, is talking about those key issues that matter most. I still have a lot of confidence in the House. I know the Senate is a tougher map, but we have got great candidates. And then I look at these governor’s races, and I see the work that’s being done.”
