In the new web ad entitled “Not Up to the Job” to be released Monday, the RNC reminds voters that Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) opposed Obama and backed then New York Sen. Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic nomination contest.
The web video shows footage of Rep. Wasserman Schultz praising then candidate-Clinton and leading supporters in a chant of “Hillary.”
On-screen text reminds viewers that “Debbie Wasserman Schultz refused to endorse Barack Obama in the 2008 Florida primary.”
The text then presents statistics about Florida’s economy “four years later, under President Obama” including figures claiming a 9.9 percent unemployment rate in the state, 1.1 million new foreclosures and a 650,000 more state residents below the poverty line.
