A Democratic Party organization for younger members under age 35, that seems to oppose Bernie Sanders and can’t find a Latino to run its “caucus” can only claim a handful of elected officials in Hudson as sponsors, and virtually no place else.
Maybe that’s because of a typo-filled press release (it’s available here) that took a shot at Bernie Sanders and progressive supporters and included this passage:
“Many perceive the youth branch of the party as overwrought with Berniecrats of apathetic non-participants”
The release didn’t list the officials by district or town. When we researched it we found out that all but two are from heavily-Democratic (6 to 1 edge), heavily-Latino (43%) Hudson County.
The YD release touted its work with “millennial recruitment trainings for large political organizations including the Democratic Organization of Richmond County in NY.” That sounds impressive, until you find out that Richmond County is Staten Island, the one borough of New York City won by Donald Trump last year (Trump got almost 60% of the vote) even though registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans by 47,000.
