Top Democratic lawmaker being targeted by Progressives, again


Every two years in South Florida, a few Republican congressional candidates decide that they are the “chosen” ones to defeat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D), and every two years, all of these so-called Messianic Republicans go home with their tails tucked firmly between their tuckus (tushy in Yiddish).

Rep. Wasserman Schultz has been able to easily smackdown all of her recent Republican opponents, and never had a real primary opponent until college professor Tim Canova burst onto the political scene in 2016.

Canova gave Wasserman Schultz a run for her money but in the end lost by 10-points. Canova is running against Wasserman Schultz for the third time, but this time he has company.

Canova is considered a Bernie Sanders socialist Democrat, as is attorney Jen Perelman, who like Canova, is taking Wasserman Schultz to task over her voting history.

So who wants to unseat ‘DWS’ as badly as Perelman? Apparently, no one.

“I support a Green New Deal, my opponent, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, does not.”

Perelman, like Canova, is running to the far left of Wasserman Schultz.

Wasserman is considered a very liberal legislator, but does not support the “Medicare for All,’ instead supports improving and expanding the Affordable Care Act. 

Perelman platform lists that she supports two socialist-minded measures, the Medicare for All and the Green New Deal. Wasserman Schultz does not.

Perelman also wants reparations to African-Americans, Wasserman Schultz from our research hasn’t openly supported or opposed reparations.

In the end, Perelman and Wasserman Schultz are at opposite ends of the spectrum within the Democratic Party, but what matters campaign cash.

Wasserman Schultz has lots of it, Perelman doesn’t.
