  1. donna brazile? what is she going to talk about. what a good christian woman she is? or how she infuriated sanders supporters by giving debate questions to clinton campaign.

  2. To the DNC candidates for Chair. On transparency in DNC State Chair selection:

    Flagstaff resident new to DNC procedures wants to know how positions are filled.

    Who can vote?

    Why is there no information on DNC websites about how to participate?

    I would like to propose candidates and can not get information online, why not?
