Progressive Tim Canova Will Run Against Disgraced Former DNC Head Debbie Wasserman Schultz In 2018

“We will take no PAC money,” Tim Canova stated in announcing his campaign. Tim Canova challenges former-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for what has long been her seat representing Florida’s 23rd congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. Wasserman Schultz is the congresswoman who resigned from her position leading the Democratic Party just as the Democratic National Convention was getting started last summer.

The congresswoman was booed at her own state’s delegation breakfast during the convention, according to The Hill, after WikiLeaks released emails that showed that Wasserman Schultz and other members of the DNC were running what some have called an unfair primary that favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. DWS, as she is referred to on social media, is even a named defendant in a class action lawsuit alleging that voters were defrauded during the 2016 presidential Democratic primary election. Still, DWS won her primary election and the general election and maintains her congressional seat.

Wasserman Schultz beat Canova by just 6,775 votes in the 2016 primary election, according to Consumer Affairs. Canova feels 2018 will be the year that Wasserman Schultz is dethroned.

After Sen. Diane Feinstein suggested that there may be a need for an investigation to see if former Attorney General Loretta Lynch protected Clinton from a more critical FBI investigation during the 2016 primaries, Tim Canova tweeted that we cannot rebuild on a “foundation of lies,” and that both parties’ alleged corruption should be investigated.
