Lindsey Graham's 2020 Dem Challenger Open To Taking on DNC Chair Role if Biden Calls Him


Jamie Harrison is sharing what he would say if President-elect Joe Biden called him about the Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair position.

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-anchor Willie Geist noted that DNC chair Tom Perez is expected to step away from the role in February.

Asked if the DNC chair would be a job he would be interested in, Harrison told Geist that it is “up to” Biden to select who should take the role. However, he added, “If the President-elect calls my number, then I’m getting into the game.”

“It’s something that I’m interested in,” Harrison continued. “I think I could serve a good job at because I understand the DNC, I understand state parties, and now I have the understanding of what it is to be a candidate for office.”

“If my number gets called, I will definitely step onto the field.”
