Dean was the Democratic National Committee’s chairman from 2005 to 2009, following his loss to John Kerry in the race for the party’s 2004 presidential nomination.

As chairman, he is credited with devising the “50-state strategy,” whereby Democratic candidates were recruited for elections in every state, at all levels of government, rather than only in traditional strongholds.
