DNC Chair Complains Voters Are Influenced by ‘Pulpit on Sunday’

Wednesday at Demand Justice’s “The Court In Crisis” Summit in Washington, D.C., Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said Democrats are not reaching voters who are influenced by the “pulpit on Sunday.”

“[W]e need to build a bigger orchestra. They’ve had a big orchestra for some time and they’ve got a megaphone to amplify, whether it’s Sinclair at a local level, Fox at a national level,” Perez said.

“I’ve learned this from the outreach we’ve done at the DNC. Why are we penetrating, they ask?” he continued. “And I had someone in northwestern Wisconsin tell me, ‘You know what? For most of the people I know, their principal sources of information are Fox News, their NRA newsletter and the pulpit on Sunday.”
