Statement of DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Washington, DC – In response to some Republicans' comments today regarding the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State House, please see below a statement from Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: 

“For decades community leaders in South Carolina – and across the country – have been calling to get rid of this symbol of hatred, and action has been long overdue.  

“But this is just the beginning of a conversation we as a society need to have about race, bigotry and violence in this country – not the end of one.”
