DNC Chair Tom Perez promises no shenanigans in Nevada caucus


Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said today he is confident that Saturday's Nevada caucuses will run smoothly, after the chaotic Iowa caucuses earlier this month sparked concerns.

"I have a lot of confidence in Nevada, a really, really strong party," Perez said on CNN. "We have gone to school on the lessons of Iowa. We're as low-tech as humanly possible while still preserving efficiency."

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said he is "absolutely not" considering resigning in the wake of the Iowa caucus debacle.

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard called for Perez to step down, saying, "Ultimately this is a failure of leadership, and I think the DNC chair Tom Perez should resign."

Perez also said he's "mad as hell" about the chaos in Iowa - where both Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg declared victory.
