Wasserman Schultz Rules Out 2016 Senate Run

Representative and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) stated that she would not run for the US Senate in Florida in 2016 and would seek re-election to her House seat on Tuesday’s “Wolf” on CNN.

Wasserman Schultz said “President Obama has given me the great privilege of chairing the Democratic National Committee, and I have an opportunity to help elect the 45th President of the United States of America, and I intend to full out — serve my full four-year term that he asked me to serve, and I plan to run, and will be running for re-election to my House seat in the House of Representatives, and hope to have the privilege of continuing to represent my constituents in the United States House.”

She added, “I will be running for re-election to the United States House of Representatives and serving my full four-year term that President Obama has asked me to serve as Chair of the DNC to help advance our Democratic agenda and make sure we can preserve President Obama’s incredible legacy, like the Affordable Care Act, like the robust economy with 60 straight months of job growth that we’ve had in the private sector.”
