The decision by the Democratic National Committee to bring in a man who has questioned whether presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is “dangerous to the future of the Democratic Party” has some questioning whether the party will be able to maintain neutrality in 2020.
The DNC’s new finance chair Chris Korge, a longtime Florida lobbyist, was a major supporter of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016, and he has already given $2,700 this cycle to Kamala Harris’s presidential campaign.
