It's a good thing Hillary welcomed Debbie to her campaign team. She may not be able to fend off a primary challenge from Bernie Sanders-like challenger Tim Canova.
According to The Hill, the Democrat party, reportedly, has no intention of pouring money into Schultz's campaign at this time:We need to challenge business as usual and demand accountability from our elected officials. #DebbieDogesDebates— Tim Canova (@Tim_Canova) July 25, 2016
Rep. Ben Ray Luján (N.M.), head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), said the party would provide technical and logistical support as Wasserman Schultz squares off against primary challenger Tim Canova, a populist liberal in the mold of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
But, he quickly added, the DCCC will reserve its war chest to defend the most vulnerable Democrats and try to pick up seats currently held by Republicans — not to defend Democratic incumbents from primary challenges in blue districts.
“It's a Democratic district, and typically our resources go — when you talk about financial resources and TV buys — those go to the most competitive races in America. … That's the priority that we have as a committee,” Luján told reporters gathered in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention.In other words, a Democrat will win in that Florida district - we don't care who it is. That's horrible news for Debbie who has poured her heart and soul into advocating for all Democrats (except Bernie) in their quest for political office. Oh the schadenfreude - thou are thick and delicious.
For those living under a large oppressive rock, The Hill explains the recent controversy in which Miss Debbie finds herself:
Currently in Florida, her primary challenger and GOP rivals are getting as much mileage as possible out of Debbie's misfortune:Wasserman Schultz, the head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has come under heavy fire in recent days after thousands of internal emails suggested that the party, rather than playing neutral arbiter through the presidential primary, had favored Hillary Clinton, now the presumptive nominee, over Sanders.Released Friday by WikiLeaks, the emails have infuriated Sanders and his supporters, embarrassed party leaders, compromised the show of unity the Democrats had hoped to project in Philadelphia, and raised real questions about the future of Wasserman Schultz, who was forced to resign her DNC post, effective at the end of this week's convention.
Hillary may have gotten away, for now, with her email scandal. Signs are pointing that Debbie may not fare as well.
