Can’t make this up, people.
David Brock’s big-donor event in Aventura, FL was more important to those who want to head the DNC than the Women’s March in D.C. on Saturday:
During largest grassroots movement Dems have had in years, most of the candidates to be chair were at an exclusive donor retreat.

Although Rep. Keith Ellison was on his phone during the Brock event. Maybe he was checking on the march?

According to the Washington Post’s Dave Weigel only Pete Buttigieg marched:
Just Pete Buttigieg I think. Six rivals were in FL for Brock donor summit. https://t.co/aSZQ62A4tq

But not in D.C. In South Bend, IN, which was probably a more important march in terms of swing states and such:

Isn’t this a problem for the DNC? Guy Cecil, president of Priorities USA, tweets:
Judging from the response, it looks like only 1 candidate marched in DC or at a sister march. Given all the talk about local organizing… https://t.co/XRxCoNGOZ5

Heckuva job, Dems.
