DNC Chair Statement on Last Night’s Caucus Results

WASHINGTON – DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz issued the following statement:

“I want to offer my congratulations to Senator Bernie Sanders for his victories in last night’s caucuses, and to both our Democratic candidates for continuing to run campaigns focused on the issues that matter most to the American people. Compared to the gutter politics, ugly tabloid sensationalism and divisive rhetoric driving the Republican primary, Democrats are elevating our political discourse by debating ideas to raise wages, expand access to healthcare, improve public education, grow opportunity and level the playing field for hardworking American families. The contrast couldn’t be more clear. We must elect a Democrat as the 45th president of the United States.”
