Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez requested the resignation letters of all current staffers Tuesday to be submitted by April, NBC News reported.

After a hard fought battle - and a dramatic special election - former Labor Secretary Tom Perez was elected to be the new Chairman of the Democratic National Committee in late February. The report says DNC Chairman Tom Perez has launched an overhaul of the party's organization, following a hard year that included the abrupt resignation of former Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The call for the resignations, with a deadline of April 15, comes "as the DNC attempts a makeover following the 2016 election cycle that left many in the party jaded not only about Democrats' electoral prospects, but the party's campaign competency" as Slate puts it.

The new hires to replace outgoing staff are being guided by a Transition Advisory Committee consisting of about 30 members. Hinojosa praised DNC staffers for that work.

She replaced former Chair Rep.


"After the loss in last year's election we want make sure they come into every state across the nation rebuilding the party", James said. Bernie Sanders, for the party chairmanship. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Fla.) rigged the 2016 presidential primary contest in favor of Hillary Clinton. "We're repairing a plane at 20,000 feet".

The committee, whose members were told they are not eligible for DNC jobs, is also reviewing the DNC's contracts with vendors and consultants, a source of complaints from many Democrats.

DNC employees anticipated Perez's request, CNN reports, and similar requests have been made in previous chair transitions.

But some who supported Ellison were frustrated by Perez's victory, believing it served to further alienate progressives within the party.

NBC News notes that Perez held a meeting with his deputy chair as well as Sanders, Schumer, and several others to flush out the roles of the DNC's five vice chairs.
