Hillary Clinton ally David Brock begins a two-day conference on Monday of Democratic lawmakers and liberal organizers in Washington to set out a plan for regaining power, The Washington Post reports.

Brock plans to insist that a first step towards the rehabilitation of the party is an independent audit of the Democratic Party's failure in this past election, because "we can't have a coherent or effective road map forward unless and until we have a mutual understanding of what happened last cycle, and an accepted conclusion of where we can do better and how," according to a copy of his planned remarks at the event obtained by The Post.

The gathering, hosted by the State Innovation Exchange, is the first major gathering of Democratic lawmakers from around the country since last month's elections.

"The truth is, our party faces a crisis of competence at all levels," Brock is set to tell the group. "Progressive politics in America is an organizational disaster."

Brock hopes to create a sense of urgency among liberals to invest more funds into the states, where Democrats suffered losses in both governorships and legislative chambers.

Although Brock says he is still grieving over the election results, he is to tell the group: "We can't waste time mourning. We need to organize."

To that purpose, Brock hopes the meeting will build up momentum for a gathering in Palm Beach over inauguration weekend.

Politico reported last month that Brock sent out invitations to more than 200 of the left's biggest donors to attend the January meeting to figure out how to rebuild the Democratic Party and to raise funds for initiatives to do so.

Top party leaders are planning to address the two-day conference starting on Monday, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Attorney General Eric Holder Jr., and Rep. Keith Ellison, The Post reported.
