After bitter RNC meeting, Democrats look to project unity
By WILL WEISSERT
WASHINGTON (AP) — Bitter divisions dominated a recent national Republican Party gathering. And come this weekend, Democrats are holding their own meeting, and they’re eager to showcase just how much they agree on. There’ll be no party chair fight since Jaime Harrison isn’t up for reelection. There’s no candidate jostling for a White House bid since President Joe Biden is expected to seek a second term. And there’s no national reckoning after a surprisingly strong midterm showing. The only real point of contention for the Democratic National Committee is an overhaul of the 2024 presidential primary calendar. But even that’s largely moot because Biden isn’t expected to face a major challenge for the nomination.
