DNC Chairman Tom Perez delivered remarks to liberal supporters at an “indoor Latin mall” in Atlanta, Georgia this week, speaking to a nearly empty room as Democrats struggle to connect with American voters just months ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
Perez was speaking at the Plaza Fiesta shopping center Wednesday when he slammed President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress; telling the left-wing activists to “get out and vote” this November.
“Michelle Obama always said, ‘We they go low, we go high.’ I have a variant of that. When they go low, we go vote,” said Perez to the nearly empty room.

“And when we put fear on the ballot, we don’t do so hot. Let’s face it, fear won in 2016, but let’s also face it, hope is making a huge comeback,” he added.
