DNC News Clips
Orlando Sentinel: Our Orlando Sentinel endorsement for president in 2020: Not Donald Trump | Editorial
"Some readers will wonder how we could possibly eliminate a candidate so far before an election, and before knowing the identity of his opponent.
Because there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump.
After 2½ years we’ve seen enough."
 

Omaha World-Herald: Native American activist Frank LaMere, dead at 69, remembered as a 'true civil rights leader'
"Frank LaMere, of South Sioux City, Nebraska, died Sunday night, his family said in a post on Facebook. He was 69 and recently underwent surgery to address bile duct cancer.

How long have you been a member of the DNC?
I have been a member of the DNC since July, 2009.

What got you involved in the Democratic Party to begin with?
I had worked on various Democratic Campaigns since the 1990s when I realized that the Democratic Party was the only party that came closest to caring about issues that were important to me and my community: access to affordable Health care, discrimination, the environment, returning citizens, etc.

I love to travel, anything historical, and my former hometown teams - the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles.
