After Loss, Democrats Plan Reforms With Help From Former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb

Listen Now

Former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb was in New York City with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Tuesday night as the presidential election results came in -- as well as on Wednesday during her concession speech.

With Republicans moving into the Oval Office, as well as maintaining control of Congress, Democrats are looking for answers; one avenue the party is exploring is its presidential nomination process. Following the contentious race between Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a unity reform commission was created.

Webb, who left the mayor's office in 2003, participated in the formation of the commission; during his speech at the Democratic National Convention in July, Webb said the commission is tasked with "assessing and improving our party's presidential nominating process."


Webb spoke with Colorado Matters host Nathan Heffel.
