The Next Progressive Hope? The Man Trying To Unseat The Democratic Party Chair

While he works to get his name out to Democrats in this South Florida district, Canova has picked up a lot of support nationally. Among progressives in the Democratic Party, there's a lot of anger for Wasserman Schultz and the party-at-large for being too cozy with banks and Wall Street.

In the first quarter, as a largely unknown Democratic challenger, Canova pulled in more than $500,000 in contributions, most of it from outside Florida. He expects to have $1 million by the next reporting deadline.

Canova believes Wasserman Schultz is out of step with constituents on economic and other issues, such as her support for President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. The head of the Democratic Club in Sunny Isles, Lew Thaler said when Canova spoke to his group recently, he told them he would have opposed it.

"Sunny Isles Beach is a very big Jewish community," Thaler says. "There are a substantial amount of Jewish people here. He satisfied them."

Dem convention host: Sanders supporters better 'behave themselves' when he loses

The chairman of the Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee for this summer’s Democratic National Convention said supporters of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders have to “behave themselves” when the Vermont senator loses the nomination.

During a radio interview with John Catsimatidis, Ed Rendell, a former Pennsylvania governor and Democratic National Committee chairman, laid out his vision for how the convention would play out.

“I think it’s gonna be a great convention, but of course the key to it is the Sanders people. Bernie’s gonna have his name placed in nomination; we’re gonna have a roll call; there’s gonna be a demonstration in support of Bernie; he’s gonna lose the roll call,” he said. “His supporters have to behave and not cause trouble. And I think they will, and I think Sen. Sanders will send them a strong message.”
