Wasserman Schultz’s liberal challenger set to announce $1M haul

Tim Canova, the upstart liberal who’s challenging Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her congressional seat, is about to become a million-dollar candidate.

Fueled by small-dollar donors who give to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, Canova said that, by the weekend, he’ll be on pace to have raised $1 million since he officially entered the race Jan. 7.

The source of the money is a point of pride for Canova, who was criticized last month by Wasserman Schultz for getting out-of-state donations.

“We have more donations in the State of Florida than Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This is a reflection that our progressive message is spreading here in South Florida,” Canova, who first announced his cash haul on WPLG Local 10 in Miami, told POLITICO Florida via email late Tuesday.

Wasserman Schultz’s campaign couldn’t be reached.

The surprising big-dollar Democratic primary between the party leader and the liberal political newcomer has transfixed political observers in Florida and Washington, and is widely seen as a proxy fight between Sanders and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

For months, Wasserman Schultz has fought a rearguard action against Sanders’ backers who claim she’s using her post as DNC chair to help Clinton, a charge the congresswoman denies.

In the congressional race, the association with Clinton isn’t likely a bad thing for Wasserman Schultz. Clinton beat Sanders by about 69-30 percent in South Florida’s 23d Congressional District.

Wasserman Schultz is seen as a formidable candidate by Democratic insiders, but some are starting to believe in Canova.

92. Re: silvershadow @#14—Russ Feingold will unseat Ron Johnson in the U.S. Senate race from Wisconsin…
Thu May 12, 2016, 12:25 AM
May 2016

that is, if Wisconsin carries Democratic for president. (If the presidency holds for the party…so, too, will Wisconsin.) The state has been in the Democratic Party’s column over the last seven consecutive election cycles which began in 1988.


Since 1976, every presidential election in which Wisconsin had a U.S. Senate race ended up with the same party having won in the state at both the presidential and senatorial levels.

• 1976: Jimmy Carter (D), President; William Proxmire (D), U.S. Senate

• 1980: Ronald Reagan (R), who unseated Jimmy Carter and flipped the state, President; Bob Kasten (R), who unseated Gaylord Nelson, U.S. Senate

• 1988: Michael Dukakis (D), with a party pickup of the state, President; Herb Kohl (D), in a party hold with the retirement of William Proxmire, U.S. Senate

• 1992: Bill Clinton (D), President; Russ Feingold (D), who unseated Bob Kasten, U.S. Senate

• 2000: Al Gore (D), President; Herb Kohl (D), U.S. Senate

• 2004: John Kerry (D), President; Russ Feingold (D), U.S. Senate

• 2012: Barack Obama (D), President; Tammy Baldwin (D), in a party hold with the retirement of Herb Kohl, U.S. Senate



I think the pattern will continue in 2016.

Russ Feingold is leading.

Here in 2016, this may end up an election in which Wisconsin voters once again give same-party carriage, for both President and U.S. Senate, with percentage-points margins very close to each other.

That happened in 2012. A re-elected President Barack Obama ran +1.5 percent points ahead of first-term winner Tammy Baldwin. Obama won nationally by an estimated +4 and carried Wisconsin by +7. Baldwin won her election by +5.5.

Everything their candidates do is good, no matter how truly awful it is. Anyone who criticizes them for this is sexist or racist or "not a Democrat."

I couldn't get them to condemn the murder of Berta Caceres by the fascist coup death squads in Honduras--a coup that Clinton supported. If Clinton supports it, they either wipe it from their brains or trip over their forked tongues supporting it!

This has to be David Brock, trying to turn Clinton's many negatives around, by paying people to parade as Democrats and advocate whatever the negative is. This is a Karl Rove technique. Some people call it lying but it's worst than that. It's the actual, real-time "manufacture of consent."

DWS is the kind of shitty Democrat that refuses to work for or support other Democrats in their races because she doesn't want to work against her friends on the other side of the aisle and lose bipartisan connections.

Really, she said that.

I might go so far as to say that supporting DWS may be beyond the pale and sufficient reason to run someone out of the Democratic party.
