Primary Challenger Tim Canova: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Brought Lobbyists Back Into The DNC; 60-70 Superdelegates Are Lobbyists


Tim Canova, Democratic primary opponent of Debbie Wasserman Schultz for the 23rd congressional district, joins MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki to share why he believes he can beat Wasserman Schultz.

TIM CANOVA: I started calling for her to resign as the head of the Democratic National Committee after I learned that she had helped to overturn President Obama's 2008 ban on corporate lobbyist donations to the DNC. Ever since then, we find out that not only are lobbyists donating to the DNC, but there are actually 60-70 superdelegates who are registered federal lobbyists.

This kind of rigging of the system is not just confined to the national level... we see it happening right here in our own district and our own race...

When you start allowing corporate lobbyists to be superdelegates, what does that say about this kind of a democracy?

And I mentioned Dan Reynolds and the central labor council, and it is very relevant. Next week he's going to be holding a $5000/bagel breakfast for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and superdelegates.
