Will Debbie Wasserman Schultz win her primary challenge? (alt: Debbie Wasserman Schultz v. Tim Canova)

“For Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the problems with the left just keep coming. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) chief has infuriated many Democrats with her handling of the party’s presidential primary debates. She drew further howls from liberals for deeming a whole generation of young women "complacent" about their abortion freedoms. And now she's facing a primary challenge from a liberal Wall Street reformer who says she's a corporate shill detached from her district.” (

"We’re just two weeks into our political revolution in Florida, and I’m excited to tell you that we have Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s attention. Just look at this excerpt from a panicked fundraising email she sent to her list: She wrote, and I quote, ‘This is the first time I’ve EVER faced a primary challenger for Congress… We have to show them how strong we are.’"

“Given Wasserman Schultz’s prominence, the primary could turn into a referendum pitting the progressive wing of the Democratic Party against its establishment wing, in much the way the (successful) primary challenge by another economist, Dave Brat, against then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was a test of strength between the Republicans’ factions.”
