DNC on the Passing of Former DNC Chair Don Fowler

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:

“Weeks before he passed, Don Fowler called me and said four words: ‘Put me to work.’ Even when he was battling health issues, even when he was tired and it seemed like he’d given our party everything he had left, Don still showed up. He lived and breathed the Democratic Party, and his life of service to our nation should inspire us all. And I take great comfort in knowing he lived long enough to see through the cause he spent the last months of his life fighting for: electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as our next president and vice president. Together, Don and his wife Carol were a dynamic duo who embodied the values of our party, fighting tirelessly to build a better future for working families. On behalf of the entire Democratic Party, I’m sending my thoughts to Carol, Don’s family and colleagues, and the people of South Carolina during this difficult time. Don Fowler was one of a kind. We will miss him dearly.”
