The Democrats need to improve if they hope to improve their standing in future elections, according to Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez.
"We have to up our game," Perez, a former Secretary of Labor, said Friday on CNN's "New Day."
"It's not just simply about what happened in November 2016, it's about the 900 seats we lost in state legislatures and the governor seats and all that… because we didn't attend to the basics," Perez said in the interview.
"We have to do a better job of organizing," Perez said, "12 months a year, not just 3 months before an election."
He also pointed to the Democrats' data efforts during the "New Day" interview. "We've got to up our game on technology. There's no doubt about that. We have to build upon our voter file, and do a better job of building the data analytics platform that will enable us not only to succeed in elections today, but to be the state of the art for decades to come."
Communicating the Democrats' message to voters "in every zip code" is also vital, Perez said in the CNN interview.
The Democratic Party announced on its official Twitter feed that it was launching its "Resistance Summer" campaign on Saturday.
