DNC Votes Against Ban on Corporate Lobbying

Democratic National Committee members voted on policy before picking their next chairman or chairwoman in Atlanta on Saturday. First up was a vote on whether or not to ban donations from registered federal corporate lobbyists. The committee struck down the resolution because "they feared it would limit donations from liberal activist groups at a time when the party is in the throes of a massive rebuilding projects," according to The Hill.

Progressives, as you can imagine, were disappointed in the outcome.

Is this first vote an indication that the committee is going to elect an establishment Democrat?
