Fox News has confirmed that Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz will be named the new chair of the Democratic National Committee, replacing former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine who announced plans Tuesday to run for the U.S. Senate.
“In selecting Debbie to lead our party, President Obama noted her tenacity, her strength, her fighting spirit, and her ability to overcome adversity,” Vice President Joe Biden said in a letter announcing the new DNC chair. “President Obama expressed great admiration for her as a leader, and he was honored that she accepted this important challenge on behalf of the Democratic Party.”
Apparently it was down to Ted and Debbie. Maybe Barry thought Ted was too timid.
