The new head of the Democratic Party is seeking to present a united front by partnering with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on a tour of red and purple states.
Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez will join the former Democratic presidential candidate on visits to Maine, Utah, Nebraska, Montana, Kentucky, Florida, Arizona and Nevada.
“At a time of massive income and wealth inequality and a shrinking middle class, we need a government which represents all Americans, not just Wall Street, multi-national corporations and the top 1 percent,” a statement from Sanders and Perez reads.
Dubbed the “Come Together and Fight Back Tour,” the joint effort is also aimed at helping bridge the gap between Establishment Democrats who supported Perez for the DNC post and liberals like Sanders who backed his main rival, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison.
