And Wasserman Schultz calls Republicans “extremists” for the 5,329,987th time.
Via Washington Times:
Vulnerable Senate Democrats are increasingly running against the White House when it comes to issues like Obamacare and the Keystone XL pipeline, but Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Sunday that she isn’t concerned.
“What’s the case is that each of these candidates have to run their own race,” Mrs. Wasserman Schultz, who heads the Democratic National Committee, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents.”
History shows that the president’s party typically loses seats in mid-term elections, but Mrs. Wasserman Schultz argued Republicans are being bogged down by contested primaries featuring conservative challengers.
“You have the Republican Party who is strangled by the tea party,” she said. “They are weighed down by Republican primaries in which the tea party candidates are the likely winners. And we have countless elections now that Democrats have won because the Republicans have nominated extremists that their voters reject.”
