Debbie Wasserman Schultz Congratulates Bernie Sanders for Caucus Wins
From her perch as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., weighed in on Sunday afternoon after U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., defeated former U.S. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton in three caucuses over the weekend.
“I want to offer my congratulations to Senator Bernie Sanders for his victories in last night’s caucuses, and to both our Democratic candidates for continuing to run campaigns focused on the issues that matter most to the American people,” Wasserman Schultz said. “Compared to the gutter politics, ugly tabloid sensationalism and divisive rhetoric driving the Republican primary, Democrats are elevating our political discourse by debating ideas to raise wages, expand access to health-care, improve public education, grow opportunity and level the playing field for hardworking American families. The contrast couldn’t be more clear. We must elect a Democrat as the 45th president of the United States.”
Clinton holds a solid lead over Sanders in the delegate count.
