DNC Chair Perez: Party Learned From Iowa for Nevada

Nevada's upcoming caucuses will be "as low-tech as humanly possible," but efficiency will still be preserved, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said Wednesday, commenting as volunteers and officials are raising questions about tech issues ahead of Saturday's events.

"We have gone to school on the lessons of Iowa," Perez told CNN's "New Day." "I have a lot of confidence in Nevada. A really, really strong party."

The results of the Iowa caucuses were delayed for almost a week because of problems with a new app that had been used to report the numbers, among other issues, and Perez said Wednesday that there were "a lot of volunteers who had to do back-of-the-envelope math."

Meanwhile, Nevada's early voting has been "remarkable," said Perez.

"In the first three days, there were 36,000 early voters," he said. "We had 84,000 total participants in 2016. That 36,000 doesn't include yesterday, which I think may be the biggest day of them all."

Perez said the technology being used in Nevada is "much more user-friendly," but in early voting, people were using paper ballots, "so it was very easy."

"If you were limited English proficient, you could vote in Spanish," said Perez. "I underscore there have been over 1,000 trainings. I participated in one probably two or three months ago, and we've redoubled our efforts every single day."

Meanwhile, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg will be on the debate stage for the first time Wednesday night after the DNC changed its rules, and Perez said he expects an exciting debate.

"You look at last week's, I think, Quinnipiac poll, all six candidates on the debate stage beat Donald Trump in a general election," said Perez. "That's the bench that we have. A very, very deep bench of candidates. I don't know who the nominee is going to be."
