Tom Perez on New Day: Lamb’s Upset Victory shows “we can win everywhere”

This morning, Tom Perez joined CNN’s Chris Cuomo to talk about Conor Lamb’s successful effort to flip Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district from red to blue – a district that Donald Trump won by 19 points in 2016. Here’s a preview of what Tom had to say about Conor’s upset victory in one of the reddest districts in the country:


“We can win everywhere. Whoever says that you have to either compete for white working class voters or for communities of color, I categorically reject that false choice because we've won in Alabama. We won here in Pennsylvania, a district that's 93% white. We helped elect people like the mayor of Atlanta, the mayor of Charlotte who are remarkable African-American women. We can win everywhere. We are winning everywhere. We're organizing everywhere and that's why Democrats are back.”
