Silverman says Dems have opportunity to build through compromise

Madison attorney Matt Silverman, the fourth candidate in the 2nd CD Dem primary, said compromise is the future of government despite being a "dirty word" in today's politics.

"The American people are hungry for responsible government, and the Democratic Party must be the party of compromise," Silverman told the convention.

He said Republicans have left Dems the opportunity to build a center-left coalition as the GOP moves to the right, and a Dem Party built on compromise would become "the dominant political party for generations to come."

"That polarization and that paralysis ... is the greatest threat to the (Republican) party today," Silverman said.
