Dean as Presumptive DNC Chair

As Rosenberg and Roemer have dropped out of the race, they now leave Gov. Howard Dean as the final candidate in the race.

As I posted before, I was supporting Rosenberg, but I always felt that should Rosenberg not win, that Dean would also make a fine chair. They both were the most clear reformers in the race.

I'm including Rosenberg's email leaving the race, and urging his supporters to support Dean. As I said before, this is a key moment for reform of the party, and will almost certainly will have Dean as chairman, who will be a key force for reform and revitalization.

Simon's letter:

"Effective today, I am ending my campaign for chair of the Democratic National Committee. I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to share my vision with Democrats around the country, and I remain encouraged by the depth and thoughtfulness DNC members have brought to this important process of picking our next chair.

Today, I am endorsing Governor Howard Dean to be the next Chairman of the DNC. While we have not always agreed on every issue, I believe his passion for our Party, his remarkable fighting spirit, his direct and powerful way of speaking, and his commitment to bringing regular people back into our Party will allow him to revitalize our Party and help us win again in the 21st century.

I call upon my supporters, and Democrats from all parts of the Party and all parts of the country, to join me in supporting Governor Howard Dean as the next DNC chair.

Though my campaign is ending, my work and my commitment to the Party that I love will continue at NDN. There I will continue to focus on the three priorities for our Party that I spelled out in the campaign - crafting a better agenda for our Party, investing in and building a better infrastructure for our politics, and leading a new national commitment to nurturing the grassroots. If we can do these three things and do them well in the years ahead, we can once again become a vibrant, dynamic and winning Party."
