Very active in the Democratic Party, Connie Milstein holds the office of Treasurer in the voluntary and independent Democratic Governors Association.
Expressing disappointment, while simultaneously looking ahead to the future, the executive director of the Democratic Governors Association, (DGA), stated his analysis of the double Democratic loss in early November 2009 of two key governorships, those in New Jersey and Virginia.
“We knew both these races would be tough, and although we’re disappointed in the results, we’re not discouraged in our greater mission,” said Nathan Daschle.
“Tomorrow marks the first day of the 2010 election cycle, when four out of five Americans will choose a governor. While we wish tonight’s results in two states would’ve been different, we’re preparing for the fight ahead in 37 states. It is a fight to restore prosperity, to build the middle class, and to elect strong democratic governors.”
