Perez appoints Ellison deputy DNC chair
by Jesse Byrnes
Tom Perez used his first motion as chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Saturday to appoint his top rival for the position, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), as deputy chair of the DNC.
"I would like to begin by making a motion, it is a motion that I have discussed with a good friend, and his name is Keith Ellison," Perez said during his acceptance speech, announcing the appointment.
"Did I hear a second?" asked Perez, the former Labor secretary during the Obama administration.
