Obama: I Have Wasserman Schultz’s Back
President Barack Obama stood up for Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Friday.
“I don’t know how she does it because she’s everywhere all the time, non-stop, and she’s a mom and a wife, and has been just an incredible supporter of my agenda. She’s taken tough votes when they’re the right thing to do, and she is somebody who I have counted on consistently,” Obama said at a DNC fundraiser in Florida Friday, according to a White House release. “She’s had my back. I want to make sure we have her back — Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”
The Hill reports:
Some Democratic lawmakers have openly discussed dropping Wasserman Schultz, saying that she has become too divisive within the party.
Bernie Sanders has even endorsed her primary opponent and has accused her of favoring Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary race.
The president endorsed Wasserman Schultz for her district race in March.
The president gave his remarks at a fundraiser where tickets went for between $10,000 and $30,000. It was hosted by Robert Rubenstein.
