DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz: We Will Have a Nominee Before the Convention, Without the Super Delegates

Thursday on CNN’s “New Day,” Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz told host Chris Cuomo that she anticipates her party will have “presumptive nominee” headed into this summer’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia with the necessary delegates to have secured a majority.

She also said those delegate will not include unelected so-called super delegates in the math.

“I don’t, I still think that we are likely on track as we go through the rest of the primary and caucus season to result in an election at the end that will have a presumptive nominee that becomes the presumptive nominee prior to the convention without the need for super delegates and that will have the majority of unpledged delegates going into the convention.
