Facing her stiffest congressional challenge yet, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) continues to stand her ground and push back against Republicans and President Trump.
Wasserman Schultz will face a two-prong attack this November as she goes up against her 2016 Democratic primary challenger Tim Canova and Republican Joe Kaufman.
Wasserman Schultz trounced Kaufman in the 2016 general election, but 2018 will be very different.
Kaufman has been playing political squirrel and has stashed away several hundred thousands dollars from his past congressional campaigns.
Canova is now an Independent with a huge axe to grind with Wasserman Schultz.
Canova will take away from Wasseman Schultz, but just how much of the Bernie Sanders vote in her district will jump ship and back?
“If Debbie Wasserman Schultz truly cared about the Democratic Party, she would step down. She has become the face, the epitome of all that is wrong in the Democratic Party…She clings to an office, we’re fighting for Democracy.”-Tim Canova
If Canova, who has stated that Wasserman Schultz should step down, can garner 10-15% of the Democratic vote, then all bets are off.
Kaufman lost to Wasseman Schultz by 20 points, so if Canova manages to get 15% of the Democratic vote, and Kaufman spends his money wisely, there is a very real chance Wasserman Schultz could lose.
