Perez, who was elected to head the DNC earlier this year, outlined a broad strategy for increasing transparency and unity within the party in a blog post published on the website Medium.

“I am more committed than ever before to restoring voters’ faith in our democratic process because even the perception of impartiality or an unfair advantage undermines our ability to win,” he wrote. “That is unacceptable.”


Perez said that the party would set the dates for the 2020 Democratic primary debates before all candidates enter the race, in order “to ensure that no candidate participating in our presidential nominating process gains any unfair advantage — real or perceived — during our primary season.”

He also vowed to continue work on the DNC’s Unity Reform Commission, which was established earlier this year to help the party recover from a divisive 2016 primary season that pitted Clinton against Sen.
