Wasserman Schultz opposes Florida revote

FL's Schultz Says Primary Redo Is "Totally Unworkable"

FL Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said on a press call with other Hillary Clinton supporters that a revote in Florida is "far too expensive" and "totally unworkable."

"A do-over in this case is absolutely inappropriate," she said, adding, "You don't rerun an election until you get the result you want."


My online comment:

Maybe Wasserman Schultz is concerned that a real contest in Florida would expose the close similarity of HRC's position on Cuba to that of George Bush, and mobilize Cuban American Democrats who want to be able to visit family more often than once every three years.

Or maybe she is afraid that HRC might have to disavow DWS's refusal to support the Democratic candidates running against her political allies on Cuba (and big backers of John McCain), the Diaz-Ballarts and Ros-Lehtinen.
