Labor Department Secretary Thomas Perez formally announced Dec. 15 his candidacy for chair of the Democratic National Committee.
Perez, a civil rights attorney and the DOL secretary since July 2013, is one of four candidates for the DNC top spot. The internal election starts Feb. 23. Other candidates vying for the post include state Democratic chairs in New Hampshire and South Carolina and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.).
Perez announced his candidacy from a new Twitter account, not associated with the DOL, saying he’s running “to strengthen our party from the ground up.”
The leadership contest comes as the party seeks to reclaim the confidence of working class voters who supported Republicans in the last election. Those voters include workers in industrial states that leaned Democratic in 2012 but sided with President-elect Donald Trump in November.
It has been reported that the White House is supporting the bid of Perez, who is widely believed to be considering a run for governor in his home state of Maryland in 2018.
