Debbie Wasserman Schultz Selected as New DNC Chair


    Excellent pick for DNC Chair!

    President Barack Obama has settled on Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as the new chair of the Democratic National Committee, top Democratic sources said Tuesday.

    Wasserman Schultz, 44, was chosen for her strength as a fund-raiser and as a television messenger, and for her clout in the crucial swing state of Florida, the sources said.

    I had a chance to meet Rep. Wasserman Schultz at an event in Arlington in March 2010 and was very impressed. Congratulations!
