Pro-life mayoral candidate for the Democrats in Omaha, Nebraska, Heath Mello, put most of the blame for his electoral loss on the shoulders of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and its new leader, Tom Perez.
Bernie Sanders supported Mello, which was criticized by pro-choice/abortion activists among the Left. Perez was not a fan of pro-life candidates within the party and made it clear in a public appearance.
Will the Democrats ever welcome more voters under their tent? That is yet to be seen post-2016 election.
