DNC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE GIVES FOWLER THE NOD OVER DEAN

The Democratic Party National Committee's Executive Board voted yesterday to recommend Donnie Fowler as the Party's new Chairman, replacing Terry McAuliffe. The Howard Dean candidacy appears to have collapsed, much as he self-imploded in the Democratic Party primaries last year after having gained early momentum. The Party's Executive Board apparently had misgivings about Dean, seeing him as too mercurial and ideologically controversial.

The election to select a new Chairman takes place on February 12th.

UPDATE: Howard Dean has prevailed handily over rival Donnie Fowler in a vote of the state chairs and despite an earlier DNC Executive Board endorsment of Fowler. Dean seems back on track now and with a full head of steam propelling him towards the Democratic Party Chairmanship.
