Sanders Makes Fundraising Appeal for Wasserman Shultz Principal Opponent

Sen. Bernie Sanders is taking his increasingly pitched fight against the Democratic Party establishment straight to the top rated of the party, with an endorsement of Tim Canova, a South Florida law professor difficult Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in her congressional district's principal.

"Clearly, I favor her opponent," Sanders told CNN in an interview over the weekend. "His views are significantly closer to mine than as to Wasserman Shultz's."

Sanders told CNN that he would not support Wasserman Schultz leading the Democratic Celebration if he is elected president.

On Sunday, Sanders sent out a fundraising e-mail for Canova, the fourth congressional candidate backing him to receive his endorsement.

"We’re performing this for the reason that it is as well late for establishment politics and establishment economics," Sanders wrote in the joint fundraising appeal, which had the topic line "Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz." "We have to have actual modify. We require U.S. Senators, members of Congress and state legislators who have the guts to take on the major funds interests whose greed is destroying the American middle class."

Canova, a longtime progressive who opposes Wasserman Schultz's support of the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, welcomed Sanders' support in a statement Saturday.

"Like Senator Sanders, I am running a campaign that's genuinely backed by the folks, not huge corporations -- 1 that stands up to Wall Street interests instead of cozying up to them. Collectively, I really feel confident that our campaign of nurses, teachers, students, seniors and operating class Floridians can function collectively to demand accountability from our leaders, and present a more constructive path forward to the people today of Florida's 23rd district," Canova said in a statement.

In a statement, Wasserman Schultz downplayed Sanders' endorsement of her opponent.

"I am so proud to serve the people today of Florida's 23rd district and I am confident that they know that I am an powerful fighter and advocate on their behalf in Congress," she said in the statement. "Even although Senator Sanders has endorsed my opponent I stay, as I have been from the starting, neutral in the Presidential Democratic principal. I appear forward to functioning collectively with him for Democratic victories in the fall."

Wasserman Schultz, who has been criticized by progressives for her stewardship of the Democratic primary, is nonetheless favored to retain her seat, and has the support of celebration heavyweights in her reelection bid -- like President Obama, who endorsed her campaign in March.

According to her most recent campaign finance disclosure, Wasserman Schultz -- who has never ever had a principal opponent -- raised about $1.five million since January 2015 and reported $840,000 on hand in via March. Canova, a 1st-time candidate, reported about $460,000 on hand via March.

Sanders' fundraising boost could assist Canova mount a much more competitive campaign. According to one particular supply close to the campaign, Sanders' fundraising appeal for progressive Residence candidates Zephyr Teachout of New York, Lucy Flores of Nevada, and Pramila Jayapal of Washington, raised a number of hundred thousand dollars for the candidates.

Flores alone raised practically $430,000 in April soon after Sanders' appeal, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
