With the country still reeling from the outcome of the presidential election, another high-stakes election approaches. The Democratic National Committee??having lost control of the White House, the House of Representatives, the Senate, most state legislatures and governorships, and soon, the Supreme Court??is preparing to elect its new leader. As the left argues over what went wrong over the past few years and how to recover, many are calling for fresh blood in the top ranks of a party that has long been controlled by older, white officials from coastal states.

.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN)??the first Muslim ever elected to Congress as well as the first black congressman from Minnesota??is gunning for the job. A leader of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, one of the few members of Congress to back Bernie Sanders in the primary, and the representative of a midwestern swing state, Ellison argues he is uniquely qualified to be the face of a party attempting to come back swinging from a series of devastating losses.

.

In a conversation with ThinkProgress, Ellison described his vision for a party that prioritizes religious and ethnic diversity, reforming the primary process, standing in solidarity with labor unions, and building relationships with voters years before an election takes place.

.

Just a few months ago, Democrats were confident that they would not only win the White House, but take back the Senate as well. Democratic lawmakers said openly that they didnt even have a contingency plan for Donald Trumps victory, since they couldnt picture it happening. What does the party need to learn from such a shocking loss?

.

We learned that voter turnout is absolutely essential, and turnout is driven by three things: a great message, some credible evidence that youre going to do it, and a delivery system. You have to knock doors, make calls, and build a relationship with voters long before Election Day. A year before. Two years before. That lesson was painfully learned.

.

You cant just do get-out-the-vote. You cant come to town the weekend before the election and saying, Hey, yall. Lets go vote. If the message and your relationship are weak, theyll pass.

.

I also think [the DNC] is perceived as too top-down. We do a good job at fundraising from labor and having them go knock on doors, but theyre not at the table enough. The party needs to have the labor voice featured at the table much more prominently. They could help us form the message and deliver the message. They dont feel as included as they should be.
