DNC Chair Tom Perez is on the hot seat because progressives within the party say it’s irresponsible for Democrats to allow primaries during the coronavirus outbreak.

Perez told MSNBC host Chris Hayes that he respects governors who are going forward with primaries: “I don’t think it’s for me to second-guess those judgments.”

Save up to 66% on MyPillow products. Use promo code FedUp, and save up to 66%.

Cynthia Nixon tweeted out questioning why anyone would listen to Perez on whether it’s safe to move forward with primaries:

Matt Stoller tweeted:

“Tom Perez is stupid and reckless. This is going to get people killed.”

Several progressives commented on Twitter that Perez was putting voters a risk.

Florida, Illinois, and Arizona moved forward with primaries, but Ohio Governor DeWine decided against having a primary.
