Howard Dean: Next DNC chair?

Howard Dean may yet become chair of the Democratic National Committee. Yesterday he won—by a significant margin—the endorsement of the Association of State Democratic Chairs. Dean won 56 votes; his closest challenger, Democratic Party strategist Donnie Fowler, won 21.

The vote for Dean negated a decision by the group's executive committee, which voted Sunday to recommend an endorsement for Fowler, the son of former national chairman Don Fowler.

Dean still has several potential hurdles in his path, including the need to win the heart of the AFL-CIO. But several Democratic Party officials are predicting a win for Dean.

The final vote by members of the DNC takes place February 12.

Go, Dean!
