Bernie Sanders Floated To Replace Wasserman Schultz As DNC Chair

Steve Guest Media Reporter

Tim Canova, who is running against Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said Monday that Bernie Sanders could replace her as chair of the Democratic National Committee.

In a Reddit AMA, Canova said, “I have heard a rumor that some Democrats want to offer the DNC to Bernie Sanders if he does not get the Democratic nomination. ”

“Perhaps that would help unify the party, I don’t know. Like many, I am still hoping Bernie will get the nomination at the convention next month.”

Sanders, who has endorsed Canova, has argued that Wasserman Schultz rigged primary against him. (VIDEO: CNN’s Tapper Challenges DNC Chair To Explain ‘Rigged’ Superdelegate System)

Last week, Sanders said, “I believe we have to replace the current Democratic National Committee leadership. We need a person at the leadership of the DNC who is vigorously supporting and out working to bring people into the political process.”
