Law Professor Tim Canova first challenged Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) in a heated and historic 2016 Democratic congressional primary election, and while Canova has announced at a third run against the veteran lawmaker from “Westonzuela”  or Weston, Florida and new challenger to Wasserman Schultz’s seat has emerged in the 2020 presidential election cycle.

Jen Perelman, an attorney from Davie, Florida, has thrown her hat into the race against Wasserman Schultz and is pushing the same Bernie Sanders political agenda and ideology that Canova first championed.

Perleman, who supports the whole gambit of issues that the “socialist Democrats” in the U.S. Congress are pushing, used a recent story about Wasserman Schultz’s battle against breast cancer to drive home her point that the popular congresswoman does not support the Medicare for All measure.

Perelman tweet points out that Wasserman Schultz, who supports the Affordable Care Act, was “again” telling her story about her recovering from breast cancer treatment while working up in Washington, and then asserted that ‘DWS’ “does NOT support Medicare for All,” questioning why she believes that Americans are not “entitled to the same treatment as a sitting Congresswoman.”

While Wasserman Schultz and many other members of Congress are using healthcare plans associated with the Affordable Care Act, none of the 435 members of the U.S. Congress prescribe to Medicare for All because the healthcare measure does not exist for it even be offered.

“We are capable of having a system wherein we spend less money and EVERYONE has healthcare. 

Transitioning to a single-payer (i.e. Medicare for All) system will eliminate the middleman, allowing doctors to treat their patients without requiring the approval of a bean-counter in a corporate office across the country.”- Jen Perelman

If Perelman wants to make mount a legitimate challenge to Wasserman Schultz, the married mother of two must ramp up her fundraising efforts.

According to the latest FEC filings, Perleman has raised roughly $39,000 with $25,000 of that coming from “other loans.” Wasserman Schultz has raised about $700,000.
