Congratulations to Jess Durfee, the chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party, who was elected this morning to the Democratic National Committee. The election was part of the California Democratic Party's Executive Board meeting that took place in San Francisco this weekend. Jess, who has been the chair of the SDCDP since 2004, becomes one of 19 California members to the Democratic National Committee beginning in 2009. He also becomes the first DNC member to be elected from San Diego County.
Over at the California Progress Report, Bill Cavala has a piece about Jess Durfee's election to the DNC this morning. [Link]
It's about time someone from San Diego was elected to the DNC. Is Mr. Durfee the first?
wait, was he the first this cycle or the first ever?
Awesome that he can get elected to the DNC but not the Central Committee.
Tells you something about San Diego Dems.
The Central Committee thing is no big deal. It's a downticket item that asks people to vote for six names. No one campaigns for Central Committee (or they don't try that hard), and if necessary, Jess is picked as an alternate for a member or an elected official.
