CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz says the Republican Party only had “superficial” diversity on display at its convention in Tampa last week —a contrast to Democrats reflecting actually “the rich diversity that we know is so important in Americans.”
“Last week, the Republicans put a lot of different folks up on the stage,” Wasserman Schultz said on POLITICO Live Monday. “It’s actions that matter, not just words.”
Calling the GOP “homogeneous,” she said that they “treat disparate groups in a superficial way [and] what that means is there’s not a lot done for Hispanic Americans, for African Americans, for LGBT Americans, for poor Americans.”
Democrats believe that Republican rhetoric on topics like immigration and welfare could permanently alienate important populations in crucial swing states, but that’s an argument the GOP tried to counter by featuring rising Hispanic party stars like Gov. Susana Martinez (R-N.M.) and Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz. And Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was tapped for a prime spot, introducing Mitt Romney for his acceptance speech.
