Pro-Life Democrat Lost Mayoral Race, Blamed DNC (and Tom Perez)

Pro-life mayoral candidate for the Democrats in Omaha, Nebraska, Heath Mello, put most of the blame for his electoral loss [1] 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 [2] in a public appearance.

Will the Democrats ever welcome more voters under their tent? That is yet to be seen post-2016 election.
