Perez and Ellison are actually friends. Make them co-chairs of the DNC

The DNC should be smart about this and in the interests of unity name both Perez and Ellison ch-chairs of the Party. Perez seems to have the backing of the some key people of the last administration, like Biden while Ellison has the backing of key people like Sanders and Schumer. Both candidates are progressives and want to shake up the Democratic party. Both have made valid criticisms of the last election and have specific plans for what they would improve. Since they like each other, they can split up the job duties and work as a team. The best effects of this would be to help heal the rift created within the party by the last election campaign.

2. No the smart move is that neither should be chairs. The chairperson of the DNC

should be a leader in their own right that is process oriented and not ideologically oriented.

Their only concern is to increase registration, increase participation and candidate recruitment.

Getting bogged down in policy fights as part of a surrogate battle is idiocy. The interests of California and the interests of West Virginia are not the same. The Chairperson of the DNC should be concerned about getting more Democrats involved in every state and not get bogged down to ideological discussions which, in fact, they will have zero input into.
