Obama to Ask DNC to Keep Wasserman Schultz as Chairwoman
She’s loud, obnoxious and dishonest – the perfect leader for the DNC.
Barack Obama wants to keep Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as chairwoman of the DNC.
Just three months ago Wasserman Schultz lied about Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren.
Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren rejected DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz’s wild claim that he told her Republican actions are “dangerous” to Israel.
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz made the offensive comments at a training session for Jewish Democrats held by the Obama campaign back in September.
President Obama will ask members of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to reelect Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) to serve another term as chairwoman.
The election will take place when the DNC meets in Washington on Jan. 22, one day after Obama is sworn in for his second term, according to a DNC official.
The term for DNC chairwoman is usually four years, meaning she will helm the party through the 2014 midterms elections when Democrats will be trying to keep control of the Senate and win back the House.
In this past election cycle, there was tension between the DNC and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee because the DNC wasn’t giving money to its Senate and House counterparts. There will likely be more coordination in 2014.
Wasserman Schultz’s record as DNC chairwoman has been fairly positive. There have been no major scandals since she succeeded former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine (D) in early 2011, when he stepped down to run for Virginia’s Senate seat, and her renomination suggests previous reports of tension between her and Obama campaign officials was overstated.
